Chicago's Most Wanted: Fifth Third Bank robber

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Many times bank robbers try to keep their crime simple. They go in and hand the bank employee a note, get the money and leave. But in this case the robber took things up a notch.

This was a robbery that took place on September 4th. A man walked into the Fifth Third Bank at Narragansett and Schubert. He stood in line with other customers, but when he approached the teller he pulled out a handgun and demanded money. The two bank employees working behind the counter complied, giving the robber the money from their drawers. He then placed it in a dark colored briefcase and fled. No one was hurt.

One witness saw the man running eastbound on Schubert, and another individual who was walking a dog at the time located a dark colored handgun which had been tossed on the sidewalk. As it turns out the weapon was a 45 caliber replica BB gun.

In terms of a possible getaway vehicle, surveillance video in the area of the bank showed what appears to be a dark colored SUV arriving and then leaving right around the time of the robbery. Agents have since been able to determine that vehicle was a Toyota FJ Cruiser.

There is concern the crook could rob another bank and perhaps next time use a real gun.

Here is the FBI's description of this BB gun bank robber.

--Black male

--Late 30's to mid 50's.

--6'0 to 6'3'' with a stocky build.

--He wore a tan floppy fishing hat and carried a dark briefcase.

He is considered a danger to the community. If you see him, you're asked to call police.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
