Who was it??

http://wgnradio.com/index.php?option...5057&Itemid=50


October 1, 2008

(WGN-AM) - The FBI is asking for help tracking down a bank robber with an unusual getaway vehicle: a racing-style dirt bike. Investigators said the same man has robbed two banks in Tinley Park in recent months, including the First Savings Bank of Hegewisch on South 80th Avenue on September 15.

He wore a mask in the robberies, the FBI said, and fled on a motorcycle with its license plate folded over to keep anyone from reading it. The FBI has dubbed the man "the Motorcycle Bandit."

He used a large hunting knife to threaten employees, investigators said, and wore a distinctive NASCAR jacket featuring the number "9." Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 312-421-6700.

It wasn't me, I already have the parts I needed for my projects. Maybe if this was a few months back .

I wonder if they catch him if we will be able to buy the bike from the police auction cheap. I am going to call tinley to put in my bid. Give them some incentive to catch the guy. LOL
