Es­caped in­mates took cab near jail

Austin American-Statesman - - THE SECOND FRONT -

Two con­victed bank rob­bers who pulled off a dar­ing overnight es­cape from a high-rise Chicago jail had changed from their prison garb by the time they hopped into a cab out­side the lock-up, in­ves­ti­ga­tors said Wed­nes­day as they ex­panded their man­hunt for the men. Au­thor­i­ties were raid­ing houses and comb­ing through records look­ing for any­body with ties to the in­mates who climbed out a jail win­dow and de­scended 20 sto­ries us­ing a makeshift rope. The FBI said sur­veil­lance footage from a cam­era nearby shows Ken­neth Con­ley and Joseph Banks get­ting into a cab about 2:45 a.m. Tues­day.
