BIG & LITTLE: Wanted In Boystown Bank Robbery, Woman Strikes Again In Edgewater

The FBI says a floppy-hatted woman who robbed the TCF Bank branch inside of Boystown's Jewel-Osco store on August 5 held up another bank Friday in Edgewater.

Friday's robbery targeted the TCF Bank branch inside of the Jewel-Osco store at 5343 N. Broadway around 3:50PM.

As she did in Boystown, the woman presented a note in which she implied that she was armed with a gun. No firearm was seen in either incident.

Video of the latest hold-up shows the woman wearing a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, a gray dress, and what appears to be a blonde wig. The FBI estimates that the woman stands 5'3" tall, weighs 200 pounds, and is between 30- and 40-years-old.

Investigators questioned a person of interest in the Boystown robbery after following pings from a tracking device that was hidden in the bank's cash. The investigation did not pan out.
