Man Charged in Connection with Robbery of TCF Bank Branch in Chicago

A 50-year-old Chicago man has been charged with the May 22, 2012 robbery of the TCF Bank branch located at 1224 S. Wabash in Chicago. Jerome D. Jackson was taken into custody without incident by Chicago Police shortly after the robbery yesterday, which occurred at approximately 5:15 p.m. Although not charged, Jackson is also suspected of robbing the same TCF Bank branch on two prior occasions: January 13, 2012 and May 12, 2012.

Jackson, whose last known address was in the 6000 block of South Drexel in Chicago, was charged in a criminal complaint filed today in U.S. District Court in Chicago with one count of bank robbery, a felony offense. He appeared at 1:30 p.m. today before U.S. Magistrate Judge ­­­Young B. Kim, at which time he was formally charged. Jackson was ordered held until his next court appearance.

The public is reminded that a complaint is not evidence of guilt and that all defendants in a criminal case are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
