Tip leads to bank robber's arrest in VIlla Park

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Acting on a tip from the public, officers from the Villa Park and Lombard police departments arrested a west suburban bank robbery suspect at a Villa Park gas station Wednesday night.

Daniel Henry Mack, 34, was wanted in connection with the recent robbery of a West Chicago bank branch, a release from the FBI said. He may also have been involved in three other suburban bank robberies.

Mack was charged in a criminal complaint filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Chicago with one count of bank robbery. According to the complaint, he robbed the Fifth Third Bank branch at 1800 N. Neltnor Blvd. in West Chicago on Aug. 14.

Although not charged in Tuesday's filing, the complaint alleges an individual matching Mack's description carried out two additional robberies — the Harris Bank branch at 191 E. Lake St. in Bloomingdale on Aug. 9; and the Citizens Financial Bank branch at 7229 South Kingery Hwy. in Willowbrook on Aug. 16.

Witnesses from both of those incidents described the robber as matching Mack's physical description. He is also believed to have committed a fourth robbery, striking the Fifth Third Bank branch at 2353 63rd St. in Woodridge, late Tuesday afternoon, the FBI said.

Following his arrest, Mack was turned over to FBI agents, and he will appear later Thursday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Sidney Schenkier to be formally charged.

Bloomingdale, West Chicago, Willowbrook and Woodridge police assisted in the investigation.

There have been at least 125 bank robberies in the Chicago area so far this year.
