Posted by wlpo on December 18, 2012

CHICAGO (AP) – Officers are searching for two inmates who escaped from the Metropolitan Correctional Center in downtown Chicago.

Central District Police Sgt. Michael Lazzaro tells the Chicago Tribune that the two inmates being housed in the federal jail were discovered missing at about 8:45 this morning, a little less than four hours after they were last checked.

Lazzaro says the inmates both were wearing orange jump suits, and one was behind bars for a bank robbery.
