Computer crimes investigators usually need between 50 and 70 hours to conduct a complete forensic investigation of a hard drive, said Lt. John Wilhelm, commander of the Maryland State Police computer crimes section. Investigators begin by creating forensic copies of a computer's hard drive and copying all of the information onto their own equipment, Wilhelm said. Just making the copy could take a few hours or a few days, depending on the size of the hard drive being copied, he said.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Police and 911 officials on Wednesday started a computer-based warrant check system following a controversy over how warrants for wanted people are handled in Jefferson County. Local police have been complaining that 911 dispatchers are no longer checking for criminal warrants from municipal police departments. Charles Town Police Chief Barry Subelsky has emphasized the importance of officers being able to check if a person is wanted by any other agencies - like during a traffic stop, for example - to help prevent a wanted person from getting away from police.

CHAMBERSBURG, PA. -- Taking images of peeling paint, a dried lake bed and a circuit board and superimposing them over his own photograph, Erik Beebe created a picture that brought to mind a tattered Arnold Schwarzenegger in the last reel of "The Terminator," albeit with a stripe of green hair down the center of his head. "That was the effect I was going for," Beebe said recently in a computer lab at the Franklin County Career and Technology Center. "I use a computer a lot to create things that come to mind," said the Chambersburg Area Senior High School senior.

He said the vote could lead to GOP backlash, but he did it to push for a solution to University System of Maryland at Hagerstown's uncertain funding.
