FBI: Escaped inmates took cab near Chicago jail

A camera near the Metropolitan Correctional Center shows the inmates getting into a cab hours before anyone knew they were gone

CHICAGO — Two convicted bank robbers who pulled off a daring overnight escape from a high-rise Chicago jail had changed from their prison garb by the time they hopped into a cab near the lock-up, investigators said Wednesday as they expanded their manhunt for the men.

Authorities were raiding houses and combing through records looking for anybody with ties to the inmates who climbed out a jail window and descended 20 stories using a makeshift rope.
