Tinley Park Man Charged in West Chicago Bank Heist

The FBI says Daniel Henry Mack also matches the description of the man who robbed banks in Bloomingdale and Willowbrook earlier this month, and that the agency believes he robbed a bank in Woodridge on Tuesday.

Villa Park and Lombard police on Wednesday night arrested a 34-year old Tinley Park man wanted in connection with the Aug. 14 robbery of a West Chicago bank, the Chicago office of the FBI announced Thursday.

Daniel Henry Mack was arrested at a Villa Park gas station after authorities received tip from the public, the FBI said.

Mack was charged in an Aug. 21 criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago with one count of bank robbery, a felony. According to the complaint, on Aug. 14 Mack robbed the Fifth Third Bank branch, 1800 N. Neltnor Blvd., West Chicago.

The complaint alleges that an individual matching Mack’s description also robbed the Harris Bank branch at 191 E. Lake St., Bloomingdale on Aug. 9, and the Citizens Financial Bank branch at 7229 S. Kingery Highway, Willowbrook, on Aug. 16. Mack has not been charged in those robberies.

The FBI said Mack also is believed to have robbed the Fifth Third Bank branch at 2353 63rd St., Woodridge, late Tuesday afternoon.

Police turned over Mack to the FBI, and he is scheduled to appear later today before U.S. Magistrate Judge Sidney I. Schenkier, when he will be formally charged.

The FBI said West Chicago, Bloomingdale, Willowbrook, and Woodridge police assisted in the robbery investigations.
