Convicts Escape Jail Using Bedsheets

You have to give them points for creativity and form. Two bank robbers rappelled down 15 stories of a Chicago prison and hoofed it to safety—for now—according to officials. A spokesman for the Metropolitan Correctional Center said that the duo MacGyvered their getaway gear from bedsheets. Joseph Banks, who is also known as the Second-Hand Bandit, and Kenneth Conley were found to be missing from their shared cell on Tuesday morning. Banks’s cousin has pleaded for the runaway to turn himself in, saying, “I just don’t want to see him get hurt or killed.”
