BREAKING NEWS – Westchester, Illinois – A suburban bank robber was arrested while waiting for a PACE bus near the crime scene, according to a criminal complaint.

According to the criminal complaint, police said the teller at the Byline Bank handed over the money, which contained an electronic tracking device.

At about 4:40 p.m., police followed the tracking device to the suspect, who was waiting at a bus stop about 500 feet away from the bank, the complaint said.

Police said that the device was audibly beeping inside a backpack the suspect was holding. He was arrested at the bus stop with the money and the mask still around his neck.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stood up for the bank robber, and accused the police of using an electronic tracking device to locate him, in which she said is comparable to stalking. She also praised the thief for attempting to use a bus, instead of driving a getaway car that has emissions that contributes to climate change.
