PRINCESS ANNE, Md. (AP) — The Maryland State Police have captured a man who escaped police custody on the Eastern Shore.

Police said Wednesday that Anthony Horsey, of Westover, Maryland, was apprehended without incident at 12:30 p.m. by the Maryland State Apprehension Team in Wicomico County.

Police say he was a passenger in a car traveling toward the Maryland-Delaware state line.

Authorities say Horsey had been served a warrant for armed robbery, first- and second-degree assault and other charges Tuesday night. He was processed at the Princess Anne Barrack and taken before a court commissioner. He escaped from police custody at about 10:45 p.m. Tuesday night while being escorted in handcuffs at the Somerset County Detention Center in Princess Anne.


He faces additional charges as a result.
