Crime is Down...
- The robbery Friday of a Northwest Side Albany Park bank branch was at least the 50th this year in the Chicago metropolitan area. In all of 2011 there were 115 bank robberies in the Chicago area, according to the FBI.
Friday’s bank robbery took place at the Albany Bank branch, 3400 W, Lawrence Ave., according to the FBI.
No weapon was shown in the robbery.
No weapon? So that makes it a theft instead. And the feebs investigate bank robberies, so CPD probably won't even count it in the stats. But it's still March and we're almost halfway to last year's totals. Indicative of a larger trend?
