FBI says another Loop bank was robbed this week, the 4th of the month downtown

The FBI is investigating yet another bank robbery in the Loop. It’s at least the fourth bank robbery or attempt this month, but three different men are apparently responsible for the crimes.

According to the agency, the man seen in these surveillance images robbed Chase Bank, 2 North LaSalle, at 4:14 p.m. Monday, May 9.

He handed the teller a note demanding money and kept his hand in his pocket as if he had a gun, a CPD report said. An initial inventory determined the robber got away with nearly $4,800.

“The FBI is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading directly to the arrest and conviction of this unknown suspect,” said a bulletin from the law enforcement agency.

It made the same offer earlier this month for information leading to the man who robbed U.S. Bank, 25 East Washington, at 11:23 a.m. on May 2.

Another $1,000 reward is out for a man who tried to rob two Loop banks within 15 minutes on May 4.
