A man who robbed a bank Monday in the Dunning neighborhood on the Northwest Side is also suspected in a Rolling Meadows bank robbery last month, according to the
Monday about 10:45 a.m., a man entered Popular Community Bank at 7181 W.
Rd. around 10:45 a.m. and handed the teller a note that read: "Hand over the money." He also told her not to include a GPS device or a dye pack, police said.
The teller tried to slip in a GPS anyway, but he saw it and ordered the teller to take it out, which she did, police said.
He stuffed the cash she gave him into the pocket of the hoodie he was wearing and fled on foot in a southeastern direction from the bank, police.
Police say the incident is listed as an aggravated robbery, but it was not known if he had a weapon. No one was hurt.
A security camera from a nearby Dunkin' Donuts captured photos of the robber and authorities are reviewing them.
The robber was described as a white man between the ages of 30 and 36 and about 6 feet 2 inches tall. He was wearing a blue cap with an unknown emblem, and a dark blue hooded sweatshirt, police said.
The FBI said the same man robbed a TCF Bank branch at 1415 Algonquin Rd. in Rolling Meadows on Oct. 26.
During the earlier robbery he was wearing a dark colored pea coat, a gray hooded sweatshirt and a Cubs baseball hat, according to the FBI.
Anyone with information should contact the FBI, 312-421-6700.
