A suspect in the recent robbery of the Standard Bank in Lockport is in FBI custody after he was arrested Saturday during another attempted bank robbery, Lockport police said.

Police said the Indiana man was captured during the attempted robbery of a Bank of America branch in Glen Ellyn.

The man reportedly confessed to the Lockport robbery as well.

Details on his identity were awaiting the filing of formal charges by the FBI.

At 9:30 a.m. Oct. 2, a “well-dressed” robber approached a teller and showed her he was carrying a small black handgun. The teller complied after he told her to put all her money in a black bag he was carrying.

No one was injured in the robbery.

Surveillance footage showed the suspect was a white man between ages 60 and 70. He was 5 feet 10 inches tall and was wearing a fedora, silver-rimmed sunglasses, a black suit and tie.
