(CHICAGO, IL) — The FBI is offering a reward of up to $50,000 for information leading to the apprehension of Kenneth W. Conley.
Kenneth W. Conley is wanted for escaping from the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC), a United States Bureau of Prisons facility located at 71 West Van Buren Street, Chicago, Illinois, on December 18, 2012.
Since September 29, 2011, Conley had been detained in federal custody after being charged in a criminal complaint with bank robbery. He entered a guilty plea to bank robbery on October 29, 2012. Conley’s sentencing hearing is set for January 10, 2013.
At approximately 7:00 a.m. on December 18, 2012, as MCC employees were arriving at work, they observed what appeared to be a rope hanging from a window on the south side of the MCC building. A physical headcount of the inmates was conducted, and Conley and his cellmate were not present. A search of their cell and the MCC was conducted, but neither Conley nor his cellmate were able to be located. Conley’s cellmate was later apprehended on December 20, 2012.
On December 18, 2012, Conley was charged with escape in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 751(a), by the United States District Court, Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division.
