BALTIMORE CITY (May 1, 2015) – Deputy State Fire Marshals have charged Greg Bailey (22) after determining he was the suspect responsible for intentionally damaging a charged water supply fire hose during active fire suppression operations at the CVS store location at 2509 Pennsylvania Avenue on Monday, April 27, 2015.
The action of puncturing the hose line caused an immediate drop in water pressure and endangered the lives of
fire service personnel at the scene who were forced to withdraw and immediately reestablish a secondary water supply source.
Bailey was already being detained at the Baltimore City Detention Center on unrelated charges. An arrest warrant was served to him today while waiting on bond review before the Court Commissioner. He was charged with: Obstructing Firefighting Operations, Malicious Destruction of Property and Reckless Endangerment.
The use of social media is credited with assisting investigators when an alert Baltimore City Police officer recognized the suspects’ picture and contacted the Office of the State Fire Marshal.
