Tim Mcgrew “I left that Bank at 16:51 tonight according to my Bank Statement. There was a White early to mid 2000’s Cadillac parked right across from the Bank Parking Lot. It was almost dark out, but it looked like the car had tinted windows. I thought it was unusual for someone to park right at the edge of the Walmart Parking lot in the place that car was. Does that constitute a tip? I don’t know”

Just before 6 pm. Emergency personnel were on scene of a bank robbery in Rockford. The robbery happened at Fifth Third bank, on the 3900 block of West Riverside.
The only suspect information at this time is a black male wearing dark clothing that fled from the scene.
