Lake County Sheriff’s police and the FBI are investigating a robbery Monday at American Midwest Bank in the Grandwood Park area near Gurnee.
Chief John Byrne with the sheriff’s department said no weapon was displayed or implied during the incident, which began around 10:55 a.m. when a lone male subject walked into the bank, approached an employee and demanded cash.
Byrne said the employee complied with the demand and handed over an unknown amount of money. The offender then left the facility, 36044 Brookside Drive, in an unknown direction, possibly in a vehicle.
A full description was not provided because he was wearing a bandana that obscured his face and eyes, said Byrne, adding that the suspect was also wearing dark clothing.
Anyone with information regarding the robbery is asked to call either the Lake County Sheriff’s Police at (847) 377-4250 or the FBI at (312) 421-6700.
