Couple try to rob bank....through drive up window....

Bonnie and Clyde, they ain't.

Federal authorities are hunting for a man and woman they say tried to rob a Naperville bank -- through its drive-up lane.

The pair pulled a champagne-colored SUV into the drive-through lanes of Mutual Bank on Raymond Drive on Monday and sent the teller a note that read: "You have 10 seconds to fill up the tube w/100's and 50's. No dye packs. Or I'll shoot everyone [in] the parking lot," according to a criminal complaint filed Thursday.

The teller told the bank manager, who locked the bank's doors and called police.

The alleged robbers -- identified as Craig Jerome, 31, of Berwyn, and Heather Kates, 32, of Rockford -- honked their car's horn several times before driving off, authorities said.

Thirty minutes later, the two went into a MidAmerica Bank in Wheaton, and Kates demanded money from the teller, saying, "The man behind me has a gun." They made off with about $900, according to the criminal complaint.

Wednesday, they struck again, robbing $2,800 after going inside a Chase Bank in Naperville and threatening the teller, authorities said.

Cameras caught clear shots of the robbers in all three holdups, and photos were sent to police departments around the area. An Oak Park detective recognized the robbers as possibly Jerome and Kates, and witnesses from the holdups picked Jerome out of a photo lineup, authorities said. Kates was positively identified in two of the three cases, authorities said.

The couple were charged in Wednesday's holdup and were being sought Thursday evening.

Can you even do that? I thought they just had ATM's at the drive-in place.

That threat would sound real enough for me to fork over the money. Let the cops sort it out later. I've been robbed in a pizza parlour I was working in at shotgun point.

Getting shot wouldn't help matters, it's just money. That's what insurance is for.

When a man has a shotgun and I have my pinky finger to fight back with, I give em the cash, I even gave dude a pizza and a pitcher of beer TO GO. That TO GO part was my goal.

I am not generally fearful, but a tweaker with a shotgun bothers me a little.

I'd fire this bank manager. You don't play games with armed criminals. You give them what they want and, like I said, let the cops sort it out.

I'd prefer not to get shot in my banks parking lot because some idiot that is standing behind 3 inches of armorlite doesn't feel a personal threat.



What's in the cash drawer of a bank?. Maybe 10G?. That isn't worth anyones life.

I was afraid "freak" was gonna shoot me for less than 3.

If you are in a robbery situation, don't be too cooperative, but comply with people that are armed. Heroes get people shot.
