Surveillance video of escaped prisoner released

December 6, 2011 (CHICAGO)

Cesar Sanchez escaped around 2 p.m. while being transported from a suburban court to a prison in Joliet.

The search moved from the Lockport area to Rockdale a few hours later after a local business alerted police that the suspect was seen climbing off a delivery truck.

After six and a half hours, Sanchez was found hiding in a storage area for portable toilets in Rockdale. So far he has not been charged in the escape.
