Police are looking for the man who robbed a Fifth Third Bank branch in the Loop on Monday evening.

The man walked into the bank at 161 North Clark and demanded money from a teller at 5:17 p.m., according to the FBI. He fled the bank with money, a GPS tracker, and a green dye pack in his hands, according to police who were on the scene.

But the tracker continuously pinged from the corner of Dearborn and Lake, leading some cops to speculate that the man dumped it nearby.

The robber is white, in his 30’s, and stands about 5’7” tall. He had very red skin and wore a Chicago Blackhawks baseball hat with sunglasses.

A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered by the FBI for information that leads directly to the man’s arrest. Tips may be shared with the bureau’s Chicago field office at 312-421-6700.
