- Officials at a federal Loop jail discovered that two convicted bank robbers had escaped after employees arriving for work at about 7 a.m. today and saw a makeshift rope hanging from the outside of the high-rise facility, federal officials said in charging the two with escape.
Joseph "Jose" Banks and Kenneth Conley made good their escape from the Metropolitan Correctional Center after last being seen for a head count conducted at about 10 p.m. Monday, authorities said.
The two are believed to have scurried down ropes made from bedsheets from the high-rise cell they shared.
No one noticed these guys stockpiling bedsheets? Or having enough leftover clothing to make it look like they were sleeping in bed after they made it out a slit-window? This certainly made for an interesting day downtown.
