Chicago Man Arrested, Suspected of Robbing Same Bank Four Times

DAVID E. GREGORY, age 57, of 7946 South Normal in Chicago, was arrested on Friday, October 28, 2011, without incident, by members of the Chicago FBI’s Violent Crimes Task Force (VCTF), after being charged with the September 30 robbery of the Chicago Community Bank, located at 52 East Lake Street in Chicago.

According to the complaint, a robber, subsequently identified as GREGORY, entered the bank around 9:30 a.m., handed the teller a note stating he had a gun and a bomb, and demanded money from the teller drawer. After receiving approximately $631.00 in cash, GREGORY left the bank, fleeing the area on foot.

Recovered at the scene was a demand note left behind by the robber. Subsequent investigation by the VCTF, including a forensic examination of the note by the FBI Laboratory, determined that a latent fingerprint on the note belonged to GREGORY.

Though not charged, GREGORY is also a suspect in the robbery of the same bank on three prior occasions, August 12, September 16 and October 12.

GREGORY appeared in U.S. District Court in Chicago on Friday, October 28, 2011, at which time he was formally charged. GREGORY is being held without bond pending his next court appearance which is scheduled for tomorrow, Friday, November 4, 2011, at 2:30 p.m.

The FBI VCTF is comprised of FBI special agents, detectives from the Chicago Police Department, and investigators from the Cook County Sheriff’s Police.

If convicted, GREGORY faces a possible sentence of up to 20 years’ incarceration.
