Police, FBI catch bank robber on their bikes

November 30, 2012 (CHICAG0)

The FBI requested the bike police's assistance after a successful bank robbery capture two years ago.

Officers caught the man after he was identified by a teller in a bank that he had already robbed downtown.

They say that they're able to chase down suspects in downtown congestion better than anybody else.

Officials haven't released much additional information, saying that it's an ongoing investigation.
