The FBI is looking for a robber believed to be responsible for a Joliet bank heist. The February robbery took place at the Standard Bank on Essington Road.

The FBI says on February 2, the robber entered the bank and initially requested change, then handed the teller a threatening note. The robber also gave the teller a nylon case in which to put cash, which the teller did. The suspect then fled on foot to a nearby parking lot.

The "Hummer Bandit" is described as a white man, 40 years old, 5'10", heavy build, with dark hair, full sideburns and a mustache. He was wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses and was given the moniker "Hummer Bandit" due to the distinctive purple-colored Hummer SUV that he is believed to have used to escape.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Chicago FBI at (312) 421-6700.
