UPDATED: Public’s Help Sought In Search For Escapee In Princess Anne

*Subject has been apprehended*
(PRINCESS ANNE, MD) — Maryland State Police are requesting the public’s help in locating an arrestee who escaped police custody while being transported to the Somerset County Detention Center.
The escapee is identified as Anthony Lowell Horsey, Jr., 29, of Westover. Horsey was last seen wearing a white tank, black pants, shoes without socks and handcuffed. He is an African American male, approximately 5’10″, 168 lbs., with dreadlocks.

Shortly before 8:00 p.m. last night, Horsey had been served a warrant for armed robbery, first and second degree assault, reckless endangerment, firearm use during a felony and other related charges. He was processed at the Princess Anne Barrack and taken before a court commissioner. Horsey was ordered to be held without bond.

At approximately 10:45 p.m. Horsey was being escorted, while handcuffed, to the rear door of the Somerset County Detention Center on Revells Neck Road in Princess Anne, when he escaped from police custody. He fled from inside a fenced-in area of the detention center and escaped under the fence near the entrance gate into a wooded area. The wooded area is located behind the detention center. No one was injured during the incident.

Troopers from the Princess Anne Barrack and the Maryland State Police Apprehension Team immediately set up a perimeter and deployed K-9 units and Aviation Command for the search. Assistance was provided by deputies from the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office and the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office. The search for Horsey continues.

Anyone who has seen Horsey or has information about his location, is urged to contact Maryland State Police at the Princess Anne Barrack at 443-260-3700 immediately, or contact local police in your area.

I bet it was a 350 lb female ECI Correction officer who couldn't Run.

12:45 If you could read and comprehend you would see it was not. You lose the bet. Go to the library and pick up a book. Start in the children's section and in a few weeks move to the teen section. In a few years you might be able to read at an adult level.

Judging by his age and fitness he could have just walked fast to escape most of his captors, most of whom haven't seen the inside of a gym since their high school prom.

He didn't think that one thru very well. He's got no where to go. He will end up in the baltimore ghetto where he belongs, and eventually someone will cap his ass.

Guess he didn't like getting his hair pulled like the last time he was in.

Just watch how many charges or years get dropped off his case. This is why criminals don't care what they do or even if they carry guns, deals are made and good long sentences are dropped to keep the conviction record up.

Yup, got a 98% conviction rate! Says the DA. (Truth is, you over charged defendants so that in Plea deals you could drop many charges for a plea of guilty, and cut the sentences to suspend 90% of it) Not good at all. Lock them up and throw away the keys!
Escape from custody, Mandatory 15 years!
Felon in possession of a gun, Mandatory 25 years!

This is how you take a Bite out of Crime!
