The FBI is investigating after two suspects robbed a worker of money from an ATM at the U.S. Bank in Fox Lake on Friday.
The Fox Lake Police Department responded around 3:30 p.m. Friday to the U.S. Bank, 55 East Grand Avenue in Fox Lake, for a report of an armed robbery.
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Special Agent Siobhan Johnson said the robbery took place at an outside ATM. The ATM was in the drive-thru of the branch.
Two male subjects, wearing black ski masks and blue jeans, implied they had a weapon, Johnson said. The two did not display a weapon.
One subject wore a dark gray or black hoodie and the other subject wore a black hoodie. Both were approximately 5-foot-10 and medium build.
Johnson said that money was taken during the robbery, but the amount is not being released.
Photos from the scene showed the ATM had been opened and it had appeared that a worker’s tool bag was sitting on the ground next to the machine at the time of the robbery.
Johnson said she was unable to confirm whether the ATM was being serviced when the robbery occurred.
An alert was broadcasted to area police departments over the Illinois State Police Emergency Radio Network immediately following the incident.
The suspects reportedly fled in a dark gray newer model Toyota Camry, the alert said.
The vehicle was last seen traveling westbound on Grand Avenue and then southbound on Route 12.
Fox Lake Police Chief Jimmy Lee told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that he is not able to release any information on the incident due to the FBI being the lead agency on the case.
