Parkville Man Arrested, Charged with Overlea Burglary

44-year-old Nelson Artez Ellis was arrested in connection with the burglary of an Overlea home earlier this week.

A Parkville man has been arrested and charged in connection with the burglary of an Overlea home earlier this week.

An X-Box 360, jewelry, a camera and a Nintendo DS were stolen from a home in the unit block of Madeline Avenue in Overlea Tuesday morning shortly after 8 a.m.

The victim arrived home as the burglar was leaving her house and called police.

Police arrested Nelson Artez Ellis, who was driving a 2003 Ford E-250 with fake license plates 4AG9715, at his home in the 6100 block of Old Harford Road.

Electronic court records show that Ellis was charged with two counts each of first-degree burglary, fourth-degree burglary, and malicious destruction of property. He was also charged with one court each of attempted escape, second-degree assault, and theft between $1,000 and $10,000.

According to the online Maryland Judiciary Case Search, Ellis is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 15 at 8:30 a.m.

On May 14, court records show that a criminal indictment was handed down against Ellis in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County. He was indicted on one count each of first-degree burglary, third-degree burglary, fourth-degree burglary, malicious destruction of property and theft from $1,000 to $10,000.

The indictment charges stem from an April 18 burglary in Perry Hall when Ellis and another man were arrested shortly after they allegedly broke into a home in the 5100 block of Forge Haven Drive.

Reading or listening to the news,one would think Parkville is a haven for crime and criminals. When did the town limits change ? Most reported crime is well outside traditional Parkville boundaries, such as Taylor ave to the south, and old Harford to the west. All of Parkville is 21234, but not all of 21234 is Parkville. Take this "Parkville man". A check on google shows the 6100 block of Old Harford well south of Northern Parkway. Parkville ? No way. I bet if location was reported accurately, crime numbers would go down 500-600 % This affects both property values and how a community is perceived, who moves here and who doesn't. I don't know why local leaders do not seem to care.....

Jerry: I've heard of crimes/traffic incidents reported here in Overlea/Fullerton as being White Marsh, Parkville, and Rosedale. You are absolutely right.

Some people are an asset to society and some people live on the generosity of society. I believe that we are reaching a point in the history of this country where we need to revise the way we treat people like Mr. Ellis. If Mr. Ellis won't provide something to society of his own accord, then the solution for this problem can be found in one of the best movies ever made, "Cool Hand Luke". Those guys knew how to work scum like Mr. Ellis and his partner and how to control their "attitude" problems. Get them up at 0 Dark Thirty in the morning, feed them on less than $2.00 a day (call Sheriff Joe Arpaio, he'll tell you how to do this) and work them until 0 Dark Thirty in the evening. Take 'em out in chain gangs and just shoot down anyone who runs away. Seems like it was a pretty successful and inexpensive system to me and IT GOT THE JOB DONE. This is an especially good way to nip juvenile offenders in the bud. As soon as they commit a felony (regardless of age) put them on the chain gang for a few years.
