A Northwest Side Bank of America was held up Tuesday by a man sporting a straw cowboy hat, authorities said.
A man approached a teller around 4:30 p.m. at the 5466 N. Milwaukee branch where he handed the teller a note announcing the robbery and demanding cash in a plastic bag, according to the Chicago Tribune. The robber lifted the right side of his shirt exposing a handgun in a holster.
The man, described as a Hispanic in his 50s standing about 5-foot-8 with brown hair, fled northwest on Milwaukee Avenue.
A tracking device placed with the cash was found by authorities on the sidewalk of the 6300 block of West Petersen Avenue.
The man was last seen wearing a straw cowboy hat, a long-sleeved blue shirt and blue jeans.
After searching the area, FBI agents and police did not find the man the Tribune reported.
Anyone with information about this robbery should contact the Chicago Office of the FBI at 312-421-6700 or local law enforcement.
