Federal court records show that a man took more than $197,000 during the Feb. 16 robbery of a bank in Lisle.

Antonio Moore, 25, of Indianapolis has also admitted to robbing a bank on Jan. 27 in Naperville, authorities said in the complaint, which charges Moore with one count of bank robbery by force or violence.


Moore has been in federal custody since his arrest Feb. 16. Bail has not been set.

According to the affidavit, Moore arrived at the BMO Harris Bank, 1510 Maple Ave., around 9:08 a.m. An employee in an office, hearing someone telling people to "hit the ground," pressed a silent alarm to notify the police.

Moore entered the office and pointed a handgun with an extended magazine at the worker, the complaint said, and he made the worker and another employee open the cash vault and stuff money into a backpack. The cash contained a tracking device.

After Moore left, the tracker recorded him driving east on I-88, north on I-294 and east on I-290 to the 1800 block of Kostner Avenue. He drove the SUV into a warehouse.

A bystander, noticing police driving toward him, thought they might be looking for that vehicle. The bystander told officers which door it had entered. An employee in the building let the police in.

According to the complaint, surveillance videos from inside the building showed Moore and five other men running around, looking outside windows. The video also shows one of the men putting the tracking device on the floor and smashing it with a rubber mallet.

Moore was arrested at 10:05 a.m.

The complaint says that after his arrest, while in a Chicago Police Department squad car, Moore said, "Can you let my guys go? It was all me."

The complaint also alleges he told Chicago police officers he robbed the bank and described the gun used, and that he said he didn't know how much was stolen because he had not had time to count it.

In addition, he told them he had robbed the BMO Harris Bank at 320 Diehl Road, Naperville, according to the complaint.
