CHICAGO — A Kentucky man dubbed the Elmer Fudd Bandit has been charged with robbing two banks in Chicago, and three others in the suburbs in October 2012, the FBI said Friday.
According to the indictment, Todd Berkley, 40, of Clarkson, Ky., robbed the TCF Bank at 4734 North Cumberland Ave. of $140 on Oct. 3, 2012. On Oct. 29, 2012, he allegedly robbed the TCF bank at 7342 W. Foster Ave. in Norwood Park of $639.
He's also accused of robbing TCF Banks in Des Plaines and Stickney, and a Charter One Bank in Norridge.
Berkley was arrested in November 2012 in Kentucky and charged with robbing a U.S. Bank in Louisville. He remains in custody in Kentucky in connection to that charge.
He was called the Elmer Fudd bandit because of the flannel shirts and hunting cap he wore while allegedly commiting the robberies.
Each of the charges carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
