SHADY: Jewel-Osco Bank Robber Strikes In Andersonville Sporting $57 Designer Ski Cap. Again.

Photo of the TCF robber in action yesterday afternoon. 
Yep. It was her. A woman who has robbed the TCF Bank inside Boystown's Jewel-Osco twice in the past year struck on the North Side yesterday afternoon.

Now dubbed the "Shady Bandit" by the FBI, the woman held up the TCF Bank inside Andersonville's Jewel-Osco Thursday.

She was last seen southbound on Clark Street from the Jewel store around 2:05PM yesterday.

Other robberies credited to the woman include:
• TCF Bank inside the Jewel-Osco at 5343 N. Broadway on April 26, 2013
• TCF Bank inside the Jewel-Osco at 4355 N. Sheridan on February 14
• TCF Bank inside the Jewel-Osco in Boystown, 3531 N. Broadway on May 21 and November 20, 2013
Her $57 Oak Street boutique winter cap.
Now, confidentially:

Really, girl? You better freshen up that look up. You can't be seen robbing banks in the same outfits.

I mean, the $57 Juicy Couture ski cap was cute the FIRST time you wore it to a bank robbery. But, twice? TWICE? No, girl. No. Get back down to Oak Street and glam it up.

And don't get us started on that parka.


  1. I was just in that store yesterday. At this point if I saw her I would have laughed and went about my shopping. There are usually at least 2, sometimes 3, cop cars planted in the parking lot of Walgreens practically outside the front door.

  2. Someone should create an interactive meme where you can put different hats & shades on her/him. "It's the Chicago Dress-Up Bank Robber!" (I stand by, the jury is out on whether she is a he...)

  3. That hat is unmistakable. Too bad the weather is getting warm. I bet she wears it everywhere.

  4. And there's a cop car that sits hidden behind the building at Clark/Catalpa every day waiting for people to roll the stop sign. She went in that direction. Probably waited 5 mins for the bus too. Don't they have the buttons under the counters anymore? An employee could have walked out and pointed her out to any one of the cops ALWAYS at those two intersections. And the FBI is involved in this? Again, inside jobs.

  5. This really makes all involved agencies on this case look bad. Mug shots of this bank robber should be posted in every bank in Chicago. 4 banks in one year. One bank hit twice, same offender, which is five bank robberies. Same area of town and the robber never changes attire. Who is in charge of this investigation?

    1. Some banks have signs posted on the front doors now that read "Remove all hats and sunglasses before entering". Maybe grocery stores should do the same.

  6. My questions exactly .. who the heck''s not doing their job?
