“Berwyn woman arrested for bank robbery

By Brett Schweinberg

Berwyn, IL —
Berwyn resident Charlene M. Troop, 23, of 1414 Kenilworth Ave., was arrested and charged with one count of bank robbery after allegedly robbing a Chase bank at 6969 Ogden Ave. about 3:42 p.m. Friday.

According to an FBI statement, Troop also is a suspect in two other robberies. The first occurred at the Metropolitan Bank at 8744 W. Ogden Ave. in Lyons on Nov. 18, and the second occurred at the Citizen’s Community Bank branch office at 7025 Roosevelt Road.

Troop had not been formally charged in those robberies as of Monday afternoon.

Troop was apprehended on Friday after allegedly walking into the Chase Bank location and handing a teller a note stating, “Quickly give me the money in your drawer. I have a gun.” The teller then gave troop about $10,090 in cash before Troop fled the building.

A customer sitting in his or her car in the bank’s parking lot saw Troop exit the bank with a white bag full of money. Upon opening the bag, the witness said the bag exploded with red ink. That individual called 911 and gave dispatchers the license plate number before following that vehicle until police officers initiated a stop in the area of Windsor and Home avenues.

Once in custody, the Chase Bank teller who was robbed positively identified Troop as the robber. After being shown surveillance footage of the robbery, Troop reportedly admitted to the crime, according to an FBI affidavit.

FBI agents subsequently discovered $5,740 in cash from the parking lot of the bank, and another $4,350 that Troop managed to scoop up after the dye packet exploded.

Troop reportedly told investigators that she robbed the bank because she lost her job in July, her mother recently passed and she owed her father money.

Troop has been charged with one count of bank robbery and is being detained until a bond hearing on Thursday. Randall Samborn, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, said his office is seeking to hold Troop without bail.

A preliminary hearing for Troop’s trial has already been set for Dec. 13.”
