Deputies recapture escaped inmate

December 21, 1999

A work release inmate who failed to return from a work release program on Oct. 1 was recaptured early Friday by Washington County Sheriff's deputies.

Joseph Dempsey Feiser, 19, was being held in the Washington County Detention Center without bond Tuesday.

A Hagerstown native, Feiser was serving 18 months for burglary when he took off. First-degree escape charges have been lodged against him, court records said.

Feiser was charged with burglary in a Jan. 19 break-in at a Williamsport home in which items valued at more than $11,000 were taken, Maryland State Police said.

Feiser, then 18, was charged with first-, third- and fourth-degree burglary, theft over $300 and malicious destruction of property.

Police recovered more than $9,000 worth of the stolen property, including televisions, computer game systems, a microwave oven, and cellular phones taken from the Kemps Mill Road home of Gregory Chider.
