PALOS HEIGHTS --- Police in southwest suburban Palos Heights and the FBI are continuing their search for two men who robbed a bank while donning nun masks Sunday afternoon.

 

A few more details emerged Monday, and Palos Heights police Detective Gerald Wodka said they have some leads, “but nothing concrete.”

 

The robbery happened at the TCF bank at 127th Street and Ridgeland Avenue.

The bank was open for business as usual Monday with shortened hours because the Memorial Day holiday.

 

It’s not the first time this branch has been robbed, Wodka said.

“It’s a pretty popular one. I don’t know why,” he said.

 

This time two offenders entered the bank just minutes before closing time at 1:58 p.m., both with weapons, Wodka said.

They jumped over the counter and took control of two employees — a bank teller and the branch manager — ordered them to the vault where their Nike duffel bag was filled with currency, he said.

No shots were fired, and no one was injured. No customers were in the bank at the time. Police are not disclosing how much money was taken.

 

The robbers were dressed in black nun costumes as depicted in Ben Affleck’s movie, “The Town,” Wodka said.

 

One is described as a male, 5 feet 7 inches tall, wearing black and white gym shoes, black gloves and armed with a revolver.

 

The second suspect is a female, about 5 feet 5 inches tall, wearing black boots, white gloves and carrying a semi-automatic pistol.

 

Both were white, according to the FBI's BanditTracker Chicago website.

 

They fled in a silver four-door Chevrolet with tinted windows and headed north on Ridgeland, police said.

So, these guys (or actually, him and her) must've watched The Town, for comparison:

Shouldn't it be pretty easy to pick out the suspects from the six people who saw that movie?

I liked the movie..

 

People need to get creative these days and quit stealing ideas from movies. I mean, how awesome would it be if the ninja turtles busted in that bank and robbed them?

Pretty lame to dress up as nuns. Didn't have the balls to rob the bank in style.
