4 Ingenious Inmates Flee Frederick Jail Special Ditpatch to Tht Star FREDERICK, Md., Feb. 8 — Four youthful prisoners with ap parently no fear of high places, scrambled out of the Frederick County jail and were still at large today. Acting Sheriff R. P. Buhrman traced their Ingenious escape Wednesday night like this: They removed a lighting fixture from the ceiling and climbed into the attic through the foot-square hole. Then they made a rope of bed clothing and lowered them selves 3S feet to the ground. Still a question is how they went over the 20-foot wall surrounding the jail. However. Mr. Buhrman is convinced they had no outside •help. i The prisoners were identified as: Lawrence Riggles, jr., 23, of Frederick, awaiting trial on break ing. entering and larceny charges; William Russell Tregonlng, 20, of Woodsboro, Md., awaiting trial for housebreaking; Richard Mazell Himes, 20, of Frederick, awaiting trial on a similar charge, and John Wright Byrum, 20, of Raleigh, N. C., an AWOL Navy man await ing sentence for grand larceny.
