Cash Stolen in Algonquin Bank Robbery

Police are investigating the bank robbery reported at Fifth Third Bank, 450 S. Randall Road, at 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday.

The Algonquin Police Department is investigating a bank robbery reported Wednesday afternoon at Fifth Third Bank in Algonquin, 450 S. Algonquin Road. 

The man accused in the robbery got away with an undetermined amount of cash, according to an Algonquin Police Department press release. 

The man, described as 30 to 40 years old and Hispanic, entered the bank at 4:45 p.m. Wednesday, approached a teller and announced the robbery. He implied he had a weapon but did not display it, according to the release.

The bank teller complied with the man's demand and no one was hurt in the robbery. 

The man was last seen fleeing in a north/northeast direction on foot from the bank. He may have gotten into a small red vehicle, heading south on Randall Road. 

Police were able to get surveillance photos of the man accused in the robbery and one of those photos is attached to this article. 

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to contact the Algonquin Police Department Criminal Investigation Division at 847-658-4531 or the Rockford Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation at 815-987-9833.

...was at the Meijer gas station across the parking lot from this bank yesterday afternoon when all the cops showed up. They had the place surrounded...maybe 6-8 cars and one or two unmarked tactical guys. It looked like it was going to be some sort of stand-off, but apparently the guy was already gone by then. Nothing was on the news last night. And this morning, all I could find was this: http://bandittrackerchicago.com/2012/05/fifth-third-bank-algonquin-il/

You should embrace the diversity of this country hater. Otherwise, you'll be irrelevant sooner than you think. Obama / Biden 2012. "Continuing to clean up the mess from the Republican Great Recession".

I stand with Julie. Dennis wake up. Unless you are a multimillionaire the Republican party doesn't give a dam about you. Try expanding your knowledge & try watching something other than Fox. You might learn something
