CHICAGO, Jan. 4 (UPI) -- The second of two bank robbers who escaped from the Metropolitan Correctional Center in downtown Chicago last month was captured Friday, the FBI said.

Kenneth Conley, who along with cellmate Joseph "Jose" Banks, used ropes made from bedsheets to scale the wall of the high-rise lockup from the 15th floor Dec. 18, was captured in Palos Hills, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Banks was captured two days after the escape less than 5 miles from the jail.

FBI spokeswoman Joan Hyde said Conley was found at an apartment complex in the south suburb about 4 p.m. Friday.
