UPDATE: ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - Federal investigators have a suspect in custody for a Rockford bank robbery that happened nearly five months ago.

Investigators say a relative of 62-year-old Albert Stallworth identified him as the man in this surveillance photo captured inside Midwest Bank during an armed robbery last August.

A criminal complaint alleges Stallworth came into the bank in the 3900 block of N. Perryville and handed a teller a note demanding money. That teller told police they gave Stallworth "bait bills" in a McDonald's bag before the suspect left the bank in a white Cadillac.
