A suspect is in custody after a Sunday morning bank robbery in Boystown, police said.

Officers responded to the TCF bank inside of Jewel-Osco, 3531 North Broadway, shortly after 10 a.m. Within seconds, they learned that a GPS tracking device located within the bank’s stolen money was moving southbound on Broadway.

Cops quickly caught up with a black Hyundai being driven by a man who matched the offender’s description outside of the Mariano’s store at 3030 North Broadway.

The car was pulled over and the driver was identified by the bank teller as the man who passed a note demanding all of her money during the hold-up. No weapon was implied or displayed during the robbery. The suspect was taken into custody.

No further information was available about the suspect as charges were pending.
