Congratulations to this Chicago police Lt. on this fine piece of police work!
An off-duty Chicago Police lieutenant in the drive-through lane of a Northwest Side bank called 911 when he saw it being robbed by a man also suspected in four previous robberies and an attempted robbery, authorities said today.
Charlie Montalvo, 36, of the 4200 block of Edgewater in Hillside, is charged in the robbery of $3,480 from a FirstMerit Bank branch, 7227 W. Addison St. in Chicago, Wednesday morning, and after his arrest admitted to robbing four other banks and trying to rob another one as long ago as last August, according to an FBI affidavit.
Montalvo told FBI agents he robbed the banks to feed his gambling habit.
