A quick-thinking customer helped Joliet police catch an alleged bank robber. The hold-up happened Wednesday morning at First Midwest Bank on West Jefferson.

A customer saw the suspect run out of the bank and get into a car. That customer followed the car, got the license plate number and then passed it on to police.

An officer spotted the alleged getaway car a short time later and caught two men after the car crashed into a building.
