Escaped inmate is captured

April 25, 1997

A prison inmate who escaped from a work detail Tuesday morning was captured without incident by Maryland State Police Thursday at 8:45 a.m. along the Golden Mile in Frederick, Md.

Edwin Phillip Hobbs, 35, a prisoner at the Maryland Correctional Training Center south of Hagerstown, was part of a five-man crew working along state roads.

He bolted at about 11:10 a.m. when the group took a break at the Md. 66 park-and-ride area just north of Interstate 70, police said.

"Hobbs was walking along U.S. 40 at Willowdale Drive when he was spotted and taken into custody,'' said Maryland State Police Sgt. Denton Lowrey.
