FREDERICK, MD. (WJZ) — UPDATE: Police have caught an inmate who escaped from a work release facility in Frederick County early Monday morning.

He was located in Martinsburg, West Virginia and taken into custody without incident.

Early Monday morning at around 8:30 a.m., inmates were called to report for work at the Frederick County Adult Detention Center Work Release facility.

One inmate didn’t show up, and when they went to his cell they found that items had been put under his bed blanket to form the shape of a body and his cell window was gone.
