Updated: March 14, 2013 6:23AM

Lake County Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information leading to an arrest in the robbery of a Fox Lake bank on Feb. 5.

At 2:41 p.m., a white male, 20 to 30 years old, about 5-feet 5-inches tall wearing a dark hat and scarf, possibly green, and a white surgical or dust mask over his facial hair walked into the PNC Bank at 66 E. Grand Ave., Fox Lake, and handed the teller a note demanding money.

The suspect fled through the front door. He was wearing a buttoned-down ski jacket with pockets in the front and black cotton gloves. No weapons were displayed or implied and there were no injuries.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit was called to the scene and tracked the suspect behind some businesses, but lost the trail near Holly Avenue. Evidence was collected and the investigation continues.

If you have any information on this or any other felony crime or fugitive, call (847) 662-2222. If your information leads to an arrest, you may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000. Remember, Crime Stoppers wants your information, not your name.
