Second Escaped Chicago Inmate Gets Caught

Posted by wlpo on January 5, 2013

CHICAGO (AP) – an escaped bank robber was disguised as an old man and led officers on a short foot chase before he was captured in Palos Hills.

Kenneth Conley was one of two bank robbers who staged a daring escape from a downtown Chicago high-rise federal jail last month. Palos Hills Deputy Chief James Boie (BOY’) says Conley was wearing a beret and glasses and walking with a limp when officers approached him Friday. Boie says Conley pushed one of the officers and led them on a foot chase.

He says Conley tried to break into an apartment, but was caught and had a BB gun in his possession.
