Chicago's Most Wanted Corey Frierson

Posted:

FBI agents say they're stunned no one was hurt when First Midwest Bank in Country Club Hills was robbed just three days before Christmas. Thats when two masked men walked in to the bank brandishing what agents describe as "sub-machine gun- type weapons, commonly known as uzi's."

They say one men jumped over the counter and cleaned out a few teller drawers, while the other told bank employees and customers to lay on the floor. As they left the bank, one of the men reportedly wished everyone "Merry Christmas."

FBI agents believe that suspect is 25-year-old Corey Frierson. Since this bank robbery happened back on December 22nd, police and FBI agents have tracked down the other gunman and the suspected getaway driver. Now they're focused on finding Frierson.

Until recently, investigators say he was living with his mother in Richton Park. When they didn't find Frierson there, they went to his girlfriend's apartment in Westchester. They hit a dead end there too. The FBI's Frank Bochte says, "Based on witness statements from people living in that apartment complex, Frierson had left a couple days prior. He was last seen in a white car."

That was just a few weeks ago. However, FBI agents might not have to look to far to find Frierson. They say chances are he's hiding right here in the Chicago area. Bochte says, "We dont think he has the financial means to relocate anywhere to far from here. We believe his friends and associates are still in the area."

A ten10-thousand dollar reward is being offered for any information leading to Frierson's arrest.

Agents describe him as a black male, about six feet tall, weighing around 200 pounds, with a light complexion and freckles.

Frierson is considered armed and dangerous.

If you have any infomation, call the FBI at (312) 421- 6700.
