FOX LAKE — Police and the FBI are teaming up on tracking Lake County’s first bank robber of 2013.

Authorities on Wednesday released a picture of a man authorities are looking for in connection with the bank robbery of the PNC Bank, 66 E. Grand Ave.

The robbery happened around 2:41 p.m. Tuesday when a man wearing a white surgical or dust mast over facial hair entered the bank and handed the teller a note demanding money.

No weapons were implied or displayed and the teller handed out an undisclosed amount of money. The man fled on foot through the parking lot.

He was described as a white male, 20 to 30 years old, about 5-foot 5-inches tall wearing a dark knit hat and scarf, possibly green. Besides the mask, the scarf partially covered the mask. He was wearing a light-colored or tan button-down ski jacket with pockets in the front, blue jeans and black cotton gloves.

The suspect fled through the front door. The Lake County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit responded and tracked the subject behind some businesses to the east, but lost the track at Holly Avenue. Fox Lake Police Lt. Mark Schindler said Wednesday some evidence was collected at the scene.

The FBI posted a picture of the suspect on its Web site.
