About 10:25 a.m. Nov. 21, one man entered the PNC Bank branch at 2900 N. Sheridan Rd. in Zion and tried to rob it, while another man waited outside, according to the complaint.
The robber jumped the counter and said, “Give me all your money,” according to the complaint. He grabbed cash from the teller’s unlocked drawer, then tried to jump back over the counter but dropped all the money. The suspects then ran away.
More than two hours later, a man entered the Fifth Third Bank branch at 240 Skokie Blvd. in Northbrook and robbed it of about $2,876, according to the complaint. As he ran away, he dropped a single dollar bill on the floor.
Authorities compared surveillance photos from both robberies and determined the robber was the same person.

Authorities also found a message on Jackson’s Facebook Messenger app referencing the Northbrook robbery, according to the complaint.
Employees of the PNC Bank and the Fifth Third Bank identified Jackson as the robber in photo lineups, according to the complaint.
