A robber dropped his loot after a dye pack exploded outside the Sagamore Hills Township bank he targeted, authorities said.
According to the FBI, the man went inside the Charter One Bank branch, 500 W. Aurora Road, about 3 p.m. Tuesday. He handed the teller a note demanding money and left with an undisclosed amount.
Outside, a dye pack the teller had stashed with the money activated, prompting the robber to drop the cash and run. The FBI said the man got inside a blue Acura and drove away.
He is white and in his mid to late 30s. He wore a dark ball cap, dark-framed glasses, a dark gray hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.
