2 inmates escape from federal prison in Chicago

CHICAGO — Authorities say two men being held on bank robbery charges have escaped from a downtown Chicago federal prison.

Chicago Police Sgt. Michael Lazarro says their disappearance was discovered at about 8:45 a.m. today, a little less than four hours after they were last checked.

Lazarro says they used rope or bed sheets to climb from the building.

He says one was spotted downtown and the other was seen elsewhere. The FBI says in a release they were both seen in Tinley Park, a southwestern Chicago suburb.

Lazarro says the two were wearing orange jump suits when they escaped but that they may now be wearing white t-shirts, gray sweat pants and white gym shoes.

One of the escapees had been convicted and the other had recently pleaded guilty.
