CHICAGO, IL – A jail break in Chicago is kinda like the film ‘The Defiant Ones’, with Sidney Poitier and Tony Curtis playing a couple of convicts who escape a southern chain gang.

These two mugs busted out of the Metropolitan Correctional Center, and they did it the old-fashion way, by tying their bed sheets together and slipping out of their 17TH floor cell.

They may have change clothes, caught a cab, and rode a train to the Chicago suburb where the mother of one lives.

The FBI is offering a 50 grand to anyone who drops a dime on these two. Easy money for the holidays!
