The FBI believes the same unknown individual robbed a Chase bank in Cary and TCF Bank at a Huntley grocery store earlier this month.

FBI officials said the agency believes the same unknown individual robbed a Chase bank in Cary and a TCF Bank at a Huntley grocery store.

A hooded, masked man walked into the Chase bank, 300 Route 14, Cary, on Dec. 1, approached the teller counter and presented a note demanding money. A little more than one week later, an individual wearing a wig and sunglasses robbed a TCF Bank branch inside Jewel-Osco, 13200 Village Green Drive, Huntley.

On Wednesday night, a person who the FBI believes is the same individual who perpetrated the previous two crimes robbed another TCF Bank branch at Jewel-Osco in Arlington Heights, 1860 S. Arlington Heights Road.

FBI Special Agent Garrett Croon said the person’s appearance is what leads investigators to believe it is the same man, who is considered armed and dangerous.

Croon said he did not know whether there are any leads on the man’s whereabouts.

He is described as 5 feet, 8 inches to 5 feet, 10 inches tall with a small build and light complexion. The man wore a black wig with long hair.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading directly to his arrest. Anyone with information should contact the FBI’s Chicago Field Office at 312-421-6700.
