JAIL ESCAPE: Eastern District -- Police today were continuing their search for Wayne W. Washington, a 35-year-old City Jail inmate who escaped over the weekend by impersonating another inmate. Police said Washington, a resident of the 3200 block of Liberty Heights Ave. who was being held without bond on narcotic charges, walked out of the jail around 7:15 p.m. Saturday after switching identification cards with an inmate who was about to be released on $6,500 bond. Police said Washington was reported missing when a routine check of inmates revealed that the inmate awaiting release, Preston Nichols, 31, was still in his cell. Police said both men arrived at the jail from the Southern District Saturday morning and that somehow they managed to switch identity cards that are routinely placed on an inmate's cell to aid security officers when making bed checks. Police said the charge of aiding a jail inmate to escape was pending against Nichols, who originally had been arrested for assault.

Police said Anthony Woodley, 32, of the 600 block of N. Bentalou St., opened a grate and climbed into the chimney shortly after 6 p.m. Friday, but got stuck when he attempted his descent. Police and firefighters, using ropes, gradually pulled Woodley out of the chimney. Police said Woodley sustained minor cuts and bruises and was taken to the police station and charged with burglary.

When police learned that Curry was lying on the sidewalk near the station, they gave him first aid. An ambulance took Curry to the University of Maryland Medical Center, where he was listed today in stable condition. Curry told police he was arguing with another man around 11 a.m. when the man pulled a handgun and shot him twice.
