A man who escaped from Harford County authorities Jan. 24 and has left several stolen vehicles in his wake may have reached Alabama, where police recovered a stolen vehicle linked to him and believe he stole another there containing a rifle.

Terrance Kassis Washington, 31, charged with bank robbery, was on his way to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center from the county detention center in Bel Air when he slipped out of his handcuffs, leg irons and belly chain and fled.

Within hours, police said, Washington stole at least two vehicles in the county and another in Virginia as he headed south.

On Friday, police in Auburn, Ala., recovered a vehicle that was stolen in Maryland and abandoned on Interstate 85. The fugitive is suspected of stealing a pickup containing a rifle the next day.
