Pre-release center inmate flees from recreation yard

A man set to be released in May escaped last night from the state pre-release center in East Baltimore, said a spokeswoman for the Maryland Division of Correction.

Maxine Eldridge said Dennis Holmes, 39, was in the recreation yard at the center in the 900 block of Greenmount Ave. about 8 p.m. when he climbed over a fence and fled east in the 700 block of Eager St. Correctional officers chased Holmes but lost him, Eldridge said.

Holmes, whose last known address was in the 1300 block of Ensor St., was serving the last year of a four-year sentence for larceny and public nuisance convictions, Eldridge said. He was wearing a gray sweat shirt with red stripes on the shoulders when he fled.
