Two Maryland Correctional Training Center minimum-security inmates who escaped Friday morning while working on the prison grounds remain at large, a spokesman for the Hagerstown barrack of the Maryland State Police said Saturday night.

Matthew L. Chait and Michael Allen Johnson fled a work detail on prison grounds Friday about 10:15 a.m., according to information provided by prison officials and state police.

Chait, 26, was serving seven years for robbery with a deadly weapon and a handgun violation in Montgomery County, Md., and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle in Frederick County, Md., a prison official said. Johnson, 24, was serving 8 1/2 years for first-degree burglary in Carroll County, Md.

Police described Chait as a white man, 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing 175 pounds. He has tattoos on his neck and arms. Johnson was described as a white man, 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighing 186 pounds.

Chait was to be released in early 2012 and Johnson in the middle of 2011, The Herald-Mail reported Friday.

They were in a "pre-release status," according to a state police press release.
