U.S. Marshals: Second escapee caught in suburb

CHICAGO – Federal officials say the second of two bank robbers who escaped a federal jail in downtown Chicago has been arrested.

U.S. Marshals Service spokeswoman Belkis Cantor says Kenneth Conley was captured Friday in the suburb of Palos Hills.

Conley fled the Metropolitan Correctional Center last month with Joseph “Jose” Banks, apparently by smashing a hole in a wall at the bottom of a narrow cell window and scaling down about 20 stories using knotted bed sheets.

Banks was arrested without incident two days later at a Chicago home.
