Chicago's Most Wanted: Dyer, Indiana bank robber

Posted: Updated:

Bad habits die hard sometimes, and the FBI is looking for some help to break the pattern that a bank robber seems to be establishing.

FBI Special Agent Joan Hyde says she often tracks bank robbers who hit the same bank more than once. But what makes this bandit standout is that not only did he rob the same bank twice, but he waited a year between holdups -- hitting the bank in the month of February in each of the last two years.

This individual hit the TCF Bank branch at 805 Joliet Street in Dyer Indiana -- inside a Jewel --on Feb. 11, 2012. He laid low for an entire year, but then robbed the same TCF Bank branch again on Feb. 26, 2013.

During both robberies this man has gone in and approached the teller and handed the employee a note. He has implied that he has a weapon but has not displayed one. After the second robbery he was seen leaving in a small gray car with another man.

It's possible the bank robber might live in the Dyer area because robbers often tend to strike close to home, but the FBI has no specific evidence about where he lives.

Agents do, however, believe he may have traveled outside the area and robbed other banks around Chicago . That is why they are asking Fox 32r viewers all around the Chicago area to keep an eye out for this person and notify the FBI or police if they have any information.

There is an offer of up to a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the identification and arrest of this individual.

Here now is the FBI's description of this bandit:

--black male

--28 to 32 years old

--between 5'10'' and 6'0''

--weighs between 280 and 300 pounds

He is considered a danger to the community if you see him call police.
