BOYSTOWN: Woman Robs TCF Bank

Hey, lady! You're supposed to hold the note in the hand that has the glove!
A Boystown bank was robbed by a woman who claimed to have a gun Wednesday afternoon according to the FBI and Chicago police.

A person of interest was being questioned late Wednesday night, but no charges were filed.

Cops say the woman presented a note saying “Give me your money because I have a gun," at TCF bank inside of Jewel-Osco at 3531 N. Broadway around 12:56PM.

The FBI describes the offender as a shorter black woman in her 30's. She wore a large floppy hat, sunglasses, and a green shirt.

    1. It seems to be exceptionally easy to rob the TCF in that particular Jewel. Not sure why there isn't better security or surveillance by now. At least they aren't giving them that much money and of course, the risk to the robber isn't worth the reward.

  3. I don't understand why they insist on giving a note. Is it some sort of formal request, a robber etiquette thing? Can they just not remember their lines?

    1. It's in the Dummy's Guide for Robbing Supermarket Banks -- always leave physical evidence so it can be traced back to you and prove you really are a dummy and deserve leniance.

  4. This isn't bank robbery - there's some risk to robbing a bank - this is institutionalized panhandling. The government should just issue them EBT (Electronic Bankrobbery Transfer) cards.

  5. The bank robbers use notes so you other people around them don't hear what they are saying and call the police.It also hides if they have an accent too.
