A man who police say robbed a Glen Ellyn bank at gunpoint Saturday morning and another person accused of being involved in the robbery are in FBI custody awaiting charges, authorities said Saturday.
A white man about 70 years old entered the Bank of America at 600 W. Roosevelt Road in Glen Ellyn just before 11 a.m., then displayed a handgun and demanded money, a bank employee told police.
When the thief left the bank with an undetermined amount of money and fled east in a vehicle, responding officers trailed him into Lombard, police said.
The man and another person were arrested after officers from Glen Ellyn and Lombard cornered the vehicle in a parking lot near St. Charles Road and Main Street in Lombard.
Glen Ellyn Deputy Police Chief Bill Holmer said FBI personnel arrived about 2 p.m. and took custody of the suspects. Their identities are being withheld pending official charges, police said.
No one was injured in the robbery, Holmer said. The bank was open at the time of the robbery but then closed and had its entrances roped off with police tape Saturday afternoon.Copyright © 2013 Paddock Publications, Inc. All rights reserved.
