CHICAGO — A determined thief robbed a suburban bank Thursday morning — just 30 minutes after a failed attempt at a different bank, according to the FBI.
The woman started her spree at 9:30 a.m. at a PNC Bank branch at 3337 W. North Ave. in Humboldt Park, by passing a teller a note announcing a robbery, but fled without recieving any cash, authorities said.
Undeterred, the woman gave it another crack a half hour later at a Charter One Bank branch at 810 S. Oak Park Ave., in suburban Oak Park, FBI officials said.
There, she passed a bank teller a note, who handed over an undetermined amount of cash before she fled, officials said.
There was no weapon shown in either incident, according to the FBI.
The robber is described as a woman in her late 30s or 40s standing between 5-feet-6 and 5-feet-8, according to the FBI. She was last seen wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, a baseball hat and a white polo shirt, authorities said.
Anyone with information about the robbery should call the Chicago office of the FBI at (312) 421-6700.
