Chicago's Most Wanted: West Suburban Bank Robber

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A potentially dangerous bank robber is now square in the sights of the FBI.

Special Agent Ricardo Pagan says the first heist in the case happened on Monday June 11, just after 10:00 a.m. A white male in his early 40's walked into the Inland Bank and Trust on Spring Road in Elmhurst.

He walked up to the teller, passed a note saying he had a gun and demanded cash. The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of money and the man fled on foot.

The robbery was similar to one the man is suspected of committing back in April at the Chase Bank on Main Street in Bensenville. The Chase Bank heist happened on April 2, which was also a Monday.

The robber gave the teller a note demanding cash and implying that he had a weapon and then made off with the cash. The male did not display a weapon in either robbery.

The robber wore what appear to be the same clothes in both robberies: a gray sweatshirt, dark running or windbreaker-style pants and sunglasses. No one was injured in either case but agents consider the crook potentially dangerous.

In many cases with repeat robbers, they often ratchet up the level of agitation. So the pattern, which may start out with what the FBI call "note jobs," can escalate to points where the bandits use weapons, and do "take over robberies" which can put bank employees and customers in further danger.

The FBI hopes Fox Chicago viewers will recognize the photos and call police with information that will prevent further robberies.

Here is the FBI's description of the bank robber:

  • White male
  • 40-45 years old
  • Approximately six feet tall
  • Dark hair

He is considered dangerous, if you see him call police.

    The New York City medical examiner ruled Friday that a police officer's chokehold caused the death of a man whose videotaped arrest and final pleas of "I can't breathe!" sparked outrage and led to the announcement of a complete overhaul of use-of-force training for the nation's largest police force.
