Cook County Treasurer's Office - 1/3/2020
Two people are shown on a surveillance video robbing a bank. Their getaway took them of all places: the Cook County Treasurer's office, WBBM/Channel 2 reports.
The video showed two people robbing a bank near the County Building late in the afternoon of Nov. 22, 2019. Six minutes later, the pair were caught on the security cameras of the Treasurer's Office. The recording was subsequently requested by law enforcement officials.
"What they found on the tapes were these two bank robbers in the back of my office, taking the cash out of bags and stuffing it in their clothes," Treasurer Maria Pappas said.
The couple calmly walked out and hasn't been seen since, Channel 2 reports.
The Treasurer installed the video cameras years ago after eliminating costly security guards.
