A woman suspected in a string of bank robberies in Indiana and Ohio held up another bank Wednesday morning in southwest suburban Oak Lawn, according to the FBI.

The thin, 5-foot-5 white woman walked into the TCF Bank branch at 9801 S. Cicero Ave. in Oak Lawn 10:38 a.m. and made off with an unspecified amount of cash, authorities said. She didn’t show a weapon, and no one was hurt.

It was at least the sixth successful heist in eight attempts since February for the woman, who wore a black mask, a gray hooded sweatshirt, black pants and sunglasses, authorities said. She’s also suspected of robbing:

  • Allegius Credit Union in Hobart, Ind., on Feb. 23;
  • BMO Harris Bank branch in Griffith, Ind., on March 22;
  • Fifth Third Bank branch in Hobart on March 28;
  • Centier Bank branch in Griffith on April 28; and
  • State Bank and Trust in Perrysburg, Ohio, on April 29.

She was also behind botched robbery attempts at the First Midwest Bank branch in Crown Point, Ind., on Feb. 25; and at the BMO Harris branch in Hammond, Ind., on April 28.

Anyone with information should call the FBI at (312) 421-6700.
