A man committed to the Rosewood Center after being found incompetent to stand trial on a murder charge escaped this week and made it to New Hampshire before police found and arrested him early yesterday. And it wasn't the first time that Thurman Wilson, 25, got out of the Owings Mills facility for the developmentally disabled. After Wilson escaped five years ago, state officials responded with a plan to move court-committed Rosewood residents to a more secure facility. But the plan was delayed, and Wilson, who was charged with another teenager in the killing of a Prince George's cabdriver, was returned to Rosewood.

Mayor Earl A. J. "Tim" Warehime Jr. seemed puzzled by the recent departure of two-thirds of his town's police force.It wasn't that Officers Michael Bunn and Francis Reda left the force. Rather, it was where they ended up finding new jobs.Bunn, a four-year veteran, and Reda, on the job about four months, are the two newest road deputies for the Carroll County Sheriff's Department, a department that, like all other county agencies, has been under a 15-month hiring freeze."I thought they were supposed tohave a hiring freeze over there," Warehime said during Tuesday night's Town Council meeting.
