CHICAGO (CBS) — One of two convicted bank robbers who escaped from the federal jail in downtown Chicago this week was captured Thursday night.
The FBI said Joseph “Jose” Banks, 37, was arrested without incident at about 11:30 p.m. in the 2300 block of North Bosworth Avenue. Banks’ cellmate, Kenneth Conley, who escaped with Banks early Tuesday morning, remained at large as of Friday morning.
Banks appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Sidney I. Schenkier on Friday morning on a charge of escaping from federal custody. If convicted, he would face up to five extra years in prison, on top of whatever sentence he receives for his bank robbery conviction.
His wrists and ankles were in shackles during his court appearance, when he spoke quietly in a room filled with federal agents and employees of the U.S. Attorney’s office.
