The FBI said he robbed Bank of America, 515 North LaSalle, around 2:48 p.m. yesterday, escaping with about $1,500, according to a CPD report.

The same man robbed two banks in about 30 minutes last Thursday. So far, though, the FBI is still offering a reward of just $1,000 for information that leads directly to his arrest and conviction.
