Maintenance workers from an apartment building called the police to report a person believed to be camping out in the basement. When police arrived, they stopped a man wearing a beret, sunglasses, an overcoat, and hobbling with a cane and limp for questioning. The man turned out to be Conley in disguise.
Conley provided the officers with a fake name. He was found to be in possession of a BB gun.
Conley attacked a police officer once his cover was blown and fled the scene. He was apprehended a short time later as he attempted to break into another apartment. He was remanded to federal custody during an arraignment hearing on Saturday.
Conley escaped from prison using a rope made from bedsheets. Conley and an accomplice were able to remove a cinder block from their window, allowing them to squeeze through. The climbed 15-stories to the ground from their escape window.
During his arraignment, Conley was in a wheelchair as a result of an injury sustained fleeing from police.
