The suspect shown is a male wearing navy pants, a black hooded jacket, purple gloves, and a black face covering in one instance. Authorities say the male is the lone suspect. The robbery took place at approximately 10:26 a.m. Wednesday at the BMO Harris Bank in the 1700 block of South Washington Street. Authorities say the suspect walked into the bank, went straight to the teller and presented a note. The suspect then gave the teller a white garbage bag. Authorities say no weapon was shown, indicated or threatened. Suspect then fled the bank, jumping over a fence into a neighborhood and is currently at large.
Commuter Parking Lots
The Naperville City Council on Tuesday eliminated quarterly parking permits as part of the city code regulating access to the Parkview commuter parking lot near the downtown Metra station. The decision reduces the city’s total number of parking spaces dedicated to those with quarterly permits, while increasing the number of daily fee parking spaces. The council finds it will help the city to better promote access to parking.
At its meeting Tuesday, the Naperville City Council approved the release of a request for proposal (RFP) to help create a path forward for developing affordable housing for seniors and individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. An RFP is a process used to gather project proposals. The city is eying opportunities to make more affordable housing possible using city-owned property at Route 59 and 103rd Street. The land currently sits vacant on the city’s south side.
