The woman went into the bank at 1185 S. Route 31 in Crystal Lake about 11 a.m. and handed the teller a note demanding cash, police said.

She did not display a weapon and drove off in a black-colored SUV, possible a Nissan Rogue, police said.

She is described as a dark-haired white woman in her mid-30s, between 5-foot-4 and 5-foot-7 in height, and between 160 and 200 pounds, police said.

She wore a black, windbreaker-style three-quarter length jacket with a hood, a black hat, eyeglasses, black pants and black athletic shoes with white soles, police said. She also carried a pink handbag.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crystal Lake police at (815) 356-3620 or Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 762-7867. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and qualify for a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
