The identity of the woman arrested has not yet been released, but security photos from both robberies show women of similar appearance.
The arrest was announced on the Chicago FBI's Bandit Tracker website for northern Illinois bank robberies. An FBI spokesman said the two cases remain under investigation and would not comment further.
In the Grayslake robbery, authorities said, a white female with a dark jacket, black scarf and white shoes walked into the Chase Bank, 95 E. Belvidere Road, at 2:50 p.m. and handed a note to the teller demanding cash. She was carrying a multicolored handbag and did not display a weapon, police said.
The teller handed over a undisclosed amount of cash and the woman fled the scene.
On March 21 in Crystal Lake, the Chase Bank at 1185 S. Route 31 was robbed by a white woman described as wearing a black windbreaker jacket with a hood, a black hat, eyeglasses, black pants and black athletic shoes with white soles. Carrying a pink handbag, she walked into the bank shortly after 11 a.m., according to a Crystal Lake Police Department news release.
The woman, police said, passed a teller a note demanding cash but did not display a gun. She received an undisclosed amount of cash, police said, and fled in a black SUV last observed northbound on Route 31.
Here it is – Rihanna's second official preliminary offering of her impending eighth studio album R8. Teased on social media by the Bajan beauty last night, the track is unapologetically titled “B**** Better Have My Money.”
After she premiered “FourFiveSeconds” earlier this year and even performed it with Paul McCartney and Kanye West at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, Dior's first black spokeswoman treats her fans to a new single, produced by her Roc Nation labelmate Deputy.
Rihanna's highly-anticipated solo album is due later this year. The exact release date is yet to be determined, but we hope it will come out before the summer ends. Plus, the chance it will be a surprise release is huge, so keep your eyes open for an update.…
There's so much going on around Lil Wayne that we almost forgot he is actually dating Christina Milian. The CEO of Young Money is currently on his "Release Partiez" tour and he recently made headlines after he revealed Drake slept with one of his former girlfriends in an alleged proposal he is offering various publishers. Plus, of course, he is still at war with Birdman, who reached a point where he had to loan $12 million on his Miami mansion.
Back to his romantic life, Weezy and Mllian were spotted holding hands while they were leaving a movie set on Tuesday. Being one of their rare public displays of affection, the celebrities kind of confirmed what we all knew – they are an inseparable pair.
Last time we heard about them Christina was hinting at a marriage to Tunechi, telling her best friend Karrueche Tran, "I'm very happy with Violet and shoot you never know, she might be my one and only child. I may have a bunch of step kids." Lil Wayne has 4…Continue
Timbaland, Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Drake featured heavily in a PotentialOfUs.com article about the way in which modern day musicians take advantage of the technology available to them to create their sounds. The relationship between beatmakers and producers with electronic instruments is becoming stronger all the time. Sometimes, a 'real' instrument isn't used in a track at all.
The full article listed many artists, but we'll begin with the influential Kanye West in ours. After mentioning his controversial and abrasive personality, the article reads:
He’s made an indelible mark on the industry with his genius-level use of sampling in some of his most successful songs. Kanye has mastered the art of song sampling and sound looping made popular by Sean “Puffy” Combs in the early 1990s."
The source goes even further to complement the star whose interviews inspired the hit show Empire, adding:
Empire's unprecedented success of topping the Billboard 200 after conquering the ratings war, despite the soundtrack being predicted to fail, is facing a new challenge: radio airplay. It has already entered the Billboard radio airplay chart, which is rare for a television show, but if we know Empire we know there's every chance that it could top the chart soon.
"Good Enough," featuring Jussie Smollett is at No. 39 on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop chart, and at No. 47 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart. The track has achieved well in recent weeks after the gripping finale and the show's frequent news coverage, such as Danny Strong revealing that the show was inspired by Kanye West interviews.
Will the song, which was co-written and co-produced by Timbaland, be able to continue its momentum now that the first season has finished? Boogie D. of WHHL thinks so, and said:
I really like the song. And it seems to have legs in…
