WHEATON, IL — Kenneth Eggleston, a 30-year-old Chicago man on parole, has been detained as one of the suspects in a daring series of bank heists across DuPage County.

The DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office announced on Saturday the pre-trial detention of Eggleston following his alleged role in the armed robberies of BMO Harris Banks in Naperville on July 19, where $95,716 was allegedly taken, and in Addison on July 21, with $172,152 reportedly stolen, amounting to a combined reported total of $267,868. A subsequent attempted robbery at a Woodridge bank was thwarted.

Facing multiple charges, Eggleston’s list of felonies includes two counts each of Armed Violence and Armed Robbery with a Firearm, one count of Attempted Armed Robbery, two counts of Financial Institution Robbery, two counts of Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle, one count of Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, and four counts of Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon.

Awaiting his November 13 arraignment, Eggleston must answer to the substantial charges for the alleged bank robbery spree.
