Man Convicted of Local Bank Robberies Sentenced for 2009 Escape in Rolling Meadows

Man Convicted of Local Bank Robberies Sentenced for 2009 Escape in Rolling Meadows
A 44-year-old man convicted of bank robberies in the northwest suburbs, including one in Arlington Heights, has been sentenced for a 2009 escape from two Cook County state's attorney investigators that lead to a one-day crime spree and ended with his arrest in West Chicago following a car crash, according to the Daily Herald. 

A federal judge sentenced Robert Maday Wednesday to 32 years in prison, which he must serve consecutively to the 30-year prison sentence he received last year for a string of bank robberies in 2008 in Bloomingdale, Buffalo Grove, Lake Zurich, Arlington Heights and Huntley, according to the article. 

The prison sentence was handed down for a Sept. 18, 2009, escape by Maday from investigators in a Rolling Meadows parking lot while they were headed from the Kankakee County jail to a hearing at the Cook County courthouse in Rolling Meadows, according to the Daily Herald. 

Maday committed two carjackings and held up a bank before he was recaptured, according to the Bloomington Pantagraph.
