SYKESVILLE — Police still are seeking one of two men who escaped from the Sykesville Central Laundry Camp on Friday night.

Len Sipes, spokesman forthe state Department of Corrections, said the escapees climbed over the south fence at 10:15 p.m.

Adam Dare Blades, originally from Federalsburg, Caroline County, remains at large.

Blades, 20, began serving a three-year sentence at the laundry camp June 21 for a third-degree sex offense.

Policedescribe him as a 5-foot, 11-inch, white male of medium build. Blades weighs 165 pounds, has green eyes, brown hair and a fair complexion.

He has tattoos on his left and right shoulders.

The second man -- 21-year-old Mark John Harp of Severn, Anne Arundel County -- wascaptured by the Anne Arundel County Police early Monday morning.

Sipes said Harp had suffered severe hand injuries, probably from climbing over the razor ribbon on top of the fence at the laun

dry facility.

Harp was picked up by state police in Glen Burnie at 5:20 a.m. Monday and taken to the state corrections facility in Jessup, Anne Arundel County.

Harp, who entered the Central Laundry Camp on July 10, was serving an 18-month sentence for violating his probation.

Further details of the escape and arrest were unavailable last night.

The Central Laundry Camp has been the site of several escapes this year.

Among them was a Harford County man who later was charged with setting a fire at the Painters Mill Music Fair in Baltimore County after a break-in March 18. The fire caused more than $250,000 in damage and forced the theater to close.

Bradley David Spitler, 21, of Belcamp was scheduled to be tried yesterday on charges of escaping from the camp. He was serving four years at the camp for breaking, entering and theft.

Assistant State's Attorney Jill Trivas said yesterday's trial was postponed. A new date has not been set.
