UPTOWN: TCF Bank Robbed, Woman Sought

UPDATE DECEMBER 16, 2015 - The FBI has now identified a man who was "also involved" in the robbery. Details HERE.
-----------------------
Police are looking for a woman who robbed the Uptown TCF Bank at 4355 N. Sheridan Road on December 10.

Investigators say the offender approached a teller at the bank around 5:20 p.m. and demanded cash. She then fled southbound from the bank, which is located inside a Jewel-Osco store. No weapon was seen during the hold-up.

An FBI alert describes the suspect as a white woman in her early 20’s to early 30’s. She is 5-feet-2-inches to 5-feet-7-inches tall and has a slender to medium build.

Since 2014, TCF Bank branches located within Jewel-Osco stores have been robbed ten times in the 19th police district.

The 4355 N. Sheridan location has been hit four times. The Boystown location at Broadway and Addison has been robbed three times. All of the offenders were eventually arrested—except the one pictured here, of course. And her time is limited.

  1. Jees times are tough, this poor kid can't even afford a basic disguise. At least put a baseball cap on honey.

  2. Why are there still teller banks around!

    Just do online banking and ATM banking and these kinds of problems will stop!

    1. Sketchy people with sketchy sources of revenue and sketchy bill payment habits avoid online banking and ATM banking...they need their hands held by a teller to cash their stolen checks and pay their bills with cash rather than with checks.

  3. TCF (Jewel) needs to contact Tunny or the 19th District CAPS office to hire private security to keep their banks safe. Oh, how much will our property taxes be going up ? ? ? ? Tom ? Tom? You did vote for the increase - right?

  4. Times are tough all right. People are so stupid they don't even realize the best banks to rob are those located along expressways for easy getaway. NOT inside crowded grocery stores in the middle of the city.

    1. Seems to this long time resident that robbing grocery store banks is working just fine. You need a car for an expressway located bank.

    2. Well, since they are robbing the bank anyway, why not just steal a car?

  5. I feel no sympathy for the bank. They just hand over the money.
