January 5, 2009 charges filed in Buffalo Grove bank robbery
Robert D. Grant, Special Agent-in-Charge of the Chicago office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was joined today by Richard Casler, Director of Police for the Village of Schaumburg (SPD) and Steve S. Balinski, Chief of the Buffalo Grove Police Department (BGPD) in announcing the arrest of ROBERT R. MADAY, age 38, whose last known address was 540 Biesterfield Road in Elk Grove Village, Illinois.
MADAY was arrested, without incident, at approximately 3:30 PM on December 29th by officers of the SPD for multiple traffic offenses as he was driving on Martingale Road near Schaumburg Road in the northwest suburb.
MADAY was eventually charged in a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago on Wednesday, December 31st with one (1) count of Bank Robbery, which is a felony offense. According to the complaint, the Harris Bank branch, located at 1190 North McHenry Road in Buffalo Grove, was robbed of over $13,000 by a lone gunman at approximately 1:30 PM on December 29th. After entering the bank, the robber orally announced a robbery and ordered several tellers to empty the contents of their cash drawer into a black bag that he was carrying. The robber then fled the bank, disappearing without his means of escape or last direction of travel being observed.
Witnesses described the robber as a white/male who was wearing a dark colored jacket and a black ski mask that was pulled down over his face. The robber was armed with a black colored handgun that was not further described.
As detailed in the complaint, during the traffic stop by the SPD, officers discovered inside MADAY’S vehicle a black pellet gun, similar in appearance to the one used in the robbery, a black jacket and ski mask, and a black bag containing over $15,000 in U.S. currency.
Subsequent investigation by the FBI and BGPD developed additional evidence linking MADAY to the robbery.
In announcing this arrest, Mr. Grant wants to recognize the officers of the Schaumburg and Buffalo Grove Police Departments, whose dedication and professionalism led to the arrest of a potentially violent suspect. Said Mr. Grant "With the assistance and cooperation of our local law enforcement partners, as demonstrated by the arrest announced today, we are able to more effectively serve the public and help insure their continued safety."
MADAY appeared before United States Magistrate Judge Sidney I. Schenkier in Chicago on December 31st, at which time he was formally charged. MADAY was ordered held without bond, pending his next scheduled court appearance, and is being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in Chicago. If convicted of the charge filed against him, MADAY faces a possible sentence of up to twenty (20) years incarceration.
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.
