11:38 a.m. CST, December 18, 2012

(UPDATE: FBI and police SWAT teams have busted in the door of a relative's home in Tinley Park in their search for the escapees. More to come.)

Two convicted bank robbers, including the Second-Hand Bandit found guilty just last week, escaped from the Metropolitan Correctional Center in the Loop this morning, police said.

Authorities discovered them missing from their cell at the federal jail at 71 W. Van Buren St. around 8:45 a.m., according to Central District Police Sgt. Michael Lazzaro. The inmates were last checked at 5 a.m., he said.

A rope could be seen dangling from about 15 stories up along the south side of the MCC, but police would not say whether it was involved in the escape. The rope appeared to be pieces tied together.

The two are believed to be traveling together and were reportedly last seen earlier this morning in the Tinley Park area, where one of the suspects lived, according to the FBI. It said they should be considered armed and dangerous.

At least one law enforcement helicopter could be seen in the area.

Police cars also raced to the Greyhound station and checked passengers against photos of the inmates, officials said. No arrests were reported.

The escapees were identified as Joseph "Jose" Banks and Ken Conley. Banks was described as black, 37, 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds. Conley is 38, 6 feet and 185 pounds.

Banks, known as the Second-Hand Bandit, was convicted last week of two bank robberies and two attempted holdups. He made off with a nearly $600,000 in the heists, and authorities say $500,000 is still unaccounted for.

Banks was an aspiring clothing designer who claimed to be a "sovereign citizen" who could not be tried in a federal court. He acted as his own attorney and had to be restrained during his trial.

During closing arguments, Banks repeatedly interrupted a.ssistant U.S. Attorney Renato Mariotti, commenting on the evidence and suggesting photo lineups were rigged. Mariotti raised his voice over the interruptions to remind the jury of the evidence at trial, including $40,000 found in Banks' safe deposit box as well as a fake beard he wore in the robberies.

Security footage played for jurors showed Banks jumping bank counters and wielding a handgun as he ordered employees to open vaults and ATMs at the banks. In one video, a bank worker was shown hyperventilating on the floor of a cash room, clutching his chest and neck.

The other suspect was identified as Ken Conley, who pleaded guilty last October to robbing nearly $4,000 from a Homewood bank last year. He had lived in Tinley Park.

Conley robbed the MB Financial Bank branch at 2345 W. 184rd St. in Homewood on May 13, 2011. A floor host at a Chicago Heights strip club, he went back to work hours later to repay $500 he owed another club employee, authorities said. He was flashing a large amount of cash and was wearing the same black suit and white tie the bank robber wore, according to the criminal complaint.

Conley was caught by Chicago Heights police when he pointed a gun at someone while driving a gold Land Rover. Officers noticed he resembled the surveillance photos of the man who robbed the Homewood bank. Although the bank teller identified him and he was interviewed by authorities, he fled to California and was arrested there in September 2011.

A woman who answered at the home of a relative of Conley said it was "very upsetting for everyone" and declined further comment.

The last escape at the MCC was in 1985 when two convicted murderers enlarged a sixth-floor window and climbed down a 75-foot electrical cord attached to a floor buffer.

Bernard Welch and Hugh Colomb used a bar from exercise weights to knock out concrete and used hacksaw blades to cut metal away, enlarging a 3-inch window slit. The blade had been smuggled into the jail, authorities said.

Welch was serving a 143-year sentence for the 1980 murder of Dr. Michael Halberstam, a Washington, D.C. cardiologist and brother of Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Halberstam.

Colomb was convicted of k!lling an inmate and a.ssaulting a guard in the federal penitentiary in Marion.

Both men were apprehended months later.





1 ESCAPEE STILL HAS HALF MILLION DOLLARS THAT THEY NEVER FOUND. SO ALL HE HAS TO DO, IS GET IT AND AND GET THE fu*k OUT OF ILLINOIS.
