LA GRANGE – Federal agents stopped a bank robber’s plan to steal nearly $168,000 in cash early Thursday morning at a La Grange Chase Bank, according to media reports.

Gildardo Lopez Jr., 31, of Chicago and suspected getaway driver Douglas Pineda, 31, of Chicago were both arrested after Lopez allegedly exited the bank disguised in a Muslim woman’s garment, reports said.

Lopez reportedly was an ATM technician at the bank and had a key to access the bank at 14 S. La Grange Road. Pineda worked as a Transportation Security Administration airport screener, according to reports.

A judge on Friday placed both men on house arrest. If convicted, they could each face up to 10 years in prison.
