The pair were unsuccessful in the last robbery and were briefly chased by Naperville police.

A getaway driver was waiting outside the Fifth Third Bank in the Charger, and they all took off north on Naperville Road, Naperville police said in a statement.

Officers chased the car east on I-88 but lost sight of the car near I-294, police said.

The FBI is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

Tipsters were asked to call the Chicago FBI Office at 312-421-6700.
