Two men were caught by a Safeway security camera while trying to flee the store without paying for more than $600 in DVDs.
Annapolis police are trying to identify the two men caught on camera in connection with the theft of more than $600 worth of DVDs from the Safeway on 1781 Forest Dr. The store manager noticed the two men filling their baskets with DVDs on Saturday afternoon at about 4:15 p.m, said Detective Amy Miguez.

Now county officials said Forest Drive will not be free of work trucks until possibly early April, though it could be wrapped by mid March. Matt Diehl, an Anne Arundel County spokesman, …
