Jail escape foiled

March 21, 1993

Two inmates in a medium-security building at the Baltimore City Detention Center attempted an escape by removing a ceiling tile in a shower room and crawling through the rafters.

But Tony Brown, 27, and David Gollahan, 31, apparently didn't realize that there was no where to crawl to, said Barbara Cooper, a jail spokeswoman.

Above 7:40 p.m. Friday, correctional officers saw the opening through which the inmates crawled, and shortly afterward, captured them.

Ms. Cooper said Mr. Brown, who is serving a sentence for assault and driving while intoxicated, and Mr. Gollahan, seving a sentence for traffic convictions, were placed in segregation.
