An Aurora man charged in the Dec. 29 robbery of a Lisle bank is also a suspect in recent bank robberies in Glen Ellyn, Naperville and Aurora.
At about 10:08 a.m. Dec. 29, Stephen Bolf, 35, allegedly robbed the Lisle Savings Bank at 4720 Main St. in Lisle, according to an FBI complaint filed in federal court Dec. 30. A judge ordered that Bolf be detained, and his next court appearance is scheduled for next week.
Bolf is also a suspect in the robberies of Fifth Third Bank at 704 Roosevelt Road in Glen Ellyn at 1:19 p.m. Dec. 19, the PNC Bank at 9 E. Ogden Ave. in Naperville on Dec. 7 and the Fifth Third Bank at 2998 Ogden Ave. in Aurora on Nov. 21.
According to the complaint, Bolf approached a teller at Lisle Savings Bank and stated he had a gun in his bag and "wanted all the money." The robbery was captured on bank surveillance video, the complaint stated.
The teller gave Bolf the cash, a GPS tracker and bait bills, which are used by banks to aid the tracing of bank robbers, according to the complaint. Bolf then fled the bank.
The bank completed an audit, which showed it suffered a financial loss of about $1,699 in cash because of the robbery, the complaint stated. Lisle police used the GPS tracker to locate Bolf's Mazda MPV, where they found a black satchel containing $1,699 along with the GPS tracker and the bait bills, according to the complaint. A large knife also was found in the satchel.
A black coat with a hood, sunglasses, black leather gloves and a tan scarf that appeared to be identical to items worn by the bank robber during the robbery also were found in the vehicle, the complaint stated.
The teller told police the bank robber was the same height and weight as Bolf and that Bolf had a similar mustache as the bank robber.
