Batavia police investigating Tuesday bank robbery

BATAVIA – A bank robbery investigation in Batavia was unfolding the afternoon of Dec. 12.

Batavia Police Detective Michelle Langston said it involved the Old Second Bank location at 1991 W. Wilson St.

Yorkville police responded to the Menards store off Route 47 due to a report that suspects in the Batavia bank robbery were at the store. Officers sealed off the store parking lot, and there was an unconfirmed report that the suspects were taken into custody by mid-afternoon.

A Shaw Media reporter at the scene said there were 12 squad cars from the Kendall County Sheriff's Office and Yorkville Police Department at the Menards, located at 1800 Marketview Drive. Police began letting customers who were inside the store exit the building.

In connection with the incident, Batavia High School was put on soft lockdown from about 2:08 to 2:28 p.m., according to Batavia School District 101 Communications Manager Sue Gillerlain. She said there was no incident at the school, and students were dismissed at the normal time.
