ATM technician donned burqa disguise before taking $168,000 from cash machine, feds say
by Kim Janssen
ATM technician Gildardo Lopez Jr. had a key to the bank, an "Arab woman" disguise and a buddy at the airport, the feds say.
But his alleged cunning plan to steal $168,000 from a branch of Chase Bank and flee to the Dominican Republic was foiled before it began.
Federal agents say they were laying in wait as the 31-year-old Chicagoan walked into the La Grange bank wearing a burqa in the early hours of Thursday and filled a suitcase with cash.
