FBI looking for Boystown bank robber

The FBI is offering a modest reward for information that leads them directly to the man who robbed a Boystown bank branch on Monday afternoon.

At 3:51 p.m., the robber walked into the BMO Harris Bank branch at 3601 North Halsted with a heavy winter coat’s hood pulled over his head. He handed a note to the teller and escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The agency released these four surveillance images of the suspect:
