State Police today continued their search for three juveniles who escaped from the Charles H. Hickey Jr. School in Cub Hill.
The escapees are not considered dangerous, said Jacqueline Lampell, a spokeswoman for the Department of Juvenile Services.
During visitation time at the reformatory, four juveniles -- aged 15 and 16 -- escaped just before 1:30 p.m. yesterday as they were being taken by van from Unit 1, a minimum-security detention area, to the visitation area, Lampell said.
"Sometime during their transportation, they made good their escape," Lampell said.
One of the four was captured about 4:30 p.m. off grounds, Lampell said.
The three escapees had been sent to the school on larceny, burglary and grand theft charges, Lampell said.
"They were not in a maximum-security area and are not considered dangerous," the spokeswoman said.
Lampell said "there were no lapses in security" during the escapes.
It wasn't known how long the four had been at the juvenile rehabilitation facility, which was taken over by a private company this summer.
