#3: Serial Bank Robber Strikes For Third Time This Month


A pint-sized, sun hat-loving serial bank robber who has been targeting TCF Bank branches within local Jewel-Osco stores has struck for the third time this month.

The latest hit came at 3:10 Saturday afternoon at the TCF Bank inside the Jewel-Osco, 4355 N. Sheridan Road, in Uptown.

As in the two previous hold-ups, the woman handed the teller a note that said the offender was armed with a gun. No firearm was seen in any of the incidents.

The suspect is described as a black woman in her mid-30’s to mid-40’s who stands about 5’5” tall and weighs about 200 pounds.

The FBI says she is also responsible for robbing the TCF bank inside of a Boystown Jewel-Osco store on August 5 and the TCF inside of Jewel at 5343 N. Broadway on August 14.

  1. I saw her at North End 3 years ago trying to pretend she was into the football game. Nobody but me and the bartender noticed anything askew then he asked it to leave if not ordering a drink.

    1. Me 2 on the gloves!! This disguise would seem to set off alarm bells in my head if I saw her (we sure its a her??) come into a store. I have always wondered how much $ they get from these to risk many years in FEDERAL prison (no cook county judge to let the out immediately).

  3. The most lucrative jobs in Chicago are politician and criminal, although they are indistinguishable.

    1. Agreed. Tom Tunney has similar hats.

  4. Out of all the crimes to commit, bank robbery doesn't seem like a good idea. High risk, low reward. Not that this city has Rhodes Scholar criminals, mind you - but it's not as if there's millions in cash lying around your local Chase bank for the taking.
