Orland Park Police Investigating False Bank Robbery Report
Police received an erroneous report of a bank robbery at a Marquette Bank branch at 159th Street and 76th Avenue.
Orland Park Police are investigating a false report of a robbery at the Marquette Bank branch at 159th Street and 76th Avenue, according to Cmdr. John Keating.
The erroneous report came at the same time law enforcement agencies were surrounding a Tinley Park house, looking for two fugitives who escaped from a downtown Chicago correctional facility. Jose Banks, 37, and Kenneth Conley, 38, are convicted bank robbers who were last seen in Tinley Park early Tuesday.
Keating said the report resulted from "miscommunication" and that it was currently under investigation by the department.
