KENSINGTON, MD — A flower delivery to a Kensington home financed a shopping spree at Macy's and Lord and Taylor for a Gaithersburg man who allegedly helped himself to the flower recipient's credit cards, authorities say.Montgomery County Police arrested Anthony Dwight Reeves, 48, of the 500 block of Odendhal Avenue in Gaithersburg on May 23. He is charged with burglary and other offenses tied to a March theft, and detectives suspect he may have committed similar crimes they don't know about.
According to police, Reeves entered a home on March 26 in the 3300 block of University Boulevard West in Kensington to deliver flowers. He reportedly went inside the house when nobody responded to his knock on the door. Once inside the home, Reeves allegedly stole a credit card along with other property belonging to the homeowner.
With the credit card in hand, Reeves' next stop was the Macy’s store at Westfield Wheaton Mall in Wheaton and the Lord and Taylor store in Lake Forest Mall in Gaithersburg. Police say he used the victim’s credit card to buy apparel and other items totaling more than $1,000.
April 22, students Chesterbrook Academy preschool in Gaithersburg explored a bug’s life in celebration of Earth Day as they released thousands
of ladybugs throughout the schoolyard and back into the environment on plants,
flowers and trees. Students dressed for the occasion in the likeness of ladybugs,
wearing red and black colors and antennae. Leading up to Earth Day, students
learned that ladybugs serve as a natural pesticide by feeding on insects that
could otherwise harm the health of gardens, trees and shrubs. Chesterbrook

He also competed at running back, registering 251 yards on 58 carries and scored two touchdowns.
Per NCAA transfer rules, the Gaithersburg native will be sidelined for the 2016 season but looks forward to playing again the following year.
Maryland hired former Michigan assistant DJ Durkin in December and the Ohio native has already made a splash in his first month on the job by hiring three individuals with prior head coaching experience at the collegiate level.
Before making his decision, Veii said he sought counsel from his mentor, Myron Flowers, along with other Maryland student-athletes within the football program.
“I’ve heard nothing but great things about Coach Durkin from my mentor to my teammates that told me about him,” said Veii.
Flowers said the move back to Maryland will be a “great opportunity” for the Avalon graduate who plans to compete at wide receiver.
“He gets to develop a whole year at one position before taking the field in 2017,” said Flowers. “Also has a great opportunity to rekindle some relationships and build new ones with DJ Durkin and his staff while working on a degree from one of the most diverse and respected universities in the country.”
Maryland has hired a new Director of Strength and Conditioning in Rick Court who arrived in College Park with an extensive background that includes stops at Mississippi State and Ohio State.
“They’re going in the right direction in terms of development and making Maryland a competitor,” said Veii. “The strength program has made leaps and bounds and had a great strength coach in Coach Court so it’s a very bright future.”
