local interest: this day in chicago bank robbery

A man (allegedly) robbed two banks in one hour this afternoon. The first bank was downtown, a Chase bank at 340 N. State in Marina City. The second bank was 6443 N Sheridan Rd, a Citibank in Rogers Park. There was no mention of a getaway car, so I'm assuming he took the Red Line covered in an exploded bank dye pack. And he got from downtown to Rogers Park in one hour? Google maps says this trip takes 38 minutes, but I would have allowed for an hour to make the trip:

I don't condone bank robbery. I'm just impressed that he robbed two banks at these two addresses in one hour, that's all.
