A man hunt is under way for two brazen bank robbers who escaped from a jail in Illinois.  The two men, Jose Banks and Ken Conley, escaped by tying together sheets and blankets and scaling down the side of the building. The two fugitives squeezed through a window only 5 inches wide.

The convicts were gone for nine hours before jail guards realized they were missing. Now there is a manhunt for the two men authorities consider armed and dangerous.  The FBI is offering a reward for any information. If you know anything call 312-421-6700
