A woman has been charged with trying to rob a credit union in Grayslake last week.

Yvette Pedrero, 23, was charged with attempting to enter the Community Trust Credit Union at 1263 N. Route 83 in the north suburb Thursday with the intent to rob it, according to a criminal complaint filed Friday in federal court.

An acquaintance of Pedrero contacted Gurnee police Aug. 29 to tell them Pedrero tried to recruit him to assist with the robbery, prosecutors said, saying she planned to rob two branches of the credit union where she used to work — one in Grayslake and another in Gurnee.

After contacting police, the witness began cooperating with investigators and agreed to act as an informant and pretend to go along with Pedrero’s plan, prosecutors said. He provided investigators with text message exchanges with Pedrero and agreed to wear to secretly record conversations with her in a vehicle en route to the robbery.

After listening to Pedrero confirm her plan to rob the credit union multiple times, law enforcement officers arrested her as she walked toward the entrance, according to prosecutors, who said she later admitted planning to commit the robbery.
