A 26-year-old Cary man has been charged with robbing three banks in 10 days, authorities said Tuesday.

Evan L. Hall, of the 100 block of River Drive, formally was charged Monday and is in federal custody.

Hall is accused of robbing three TCF Bank branches in Aurora and Lombard between June 2 and June 12. He was arrested while fleeing the most recent robbery in a blue Audi, in which he was a passenger, according to the FBI.

In all three cases, the robber made verbal demands for money. In one case, he gestured as if he was concealing a gun, federal officials said.

After a June 2 robbery, a witness reported seeing a suspect leave a branch at 1157 North Eola Road in Aurora in a gray-colored Audi. Four days later, the same suspect hit a branch at 1777 South Main St. in Lombard, authorities said.

Hall was arrested June 12 after police stopped a blue Audi near the scene of a robbery at 1952 West Galena Blvd. in Aurora. He faces three counts of bank robbery and remains in custody pending a July 1 appearance in U.S. District Court in Chicago.

If convicted of all charges, Hall would face a maximum prison term of 20 years.

Cory Nelson, special agent in charge of the FBI's Chicago field office, credited Aurora and Lombard police for their investigations and "quick apprehension" of the suspect.
