The Deerfield Police Department responded to a bank robbery a week earlier on December 29 at the Deerfield Bank & Trust at 660 Deerfield Road. Police said that a man walked in and took a slip of paper and wrote, “I need your money now!” and gave it to the teller.

He took more than $5,000 and fled towards a nearby neighborhood.
