Retired detective turns in nephew for downtown bank robbery

CHICAGO (AP) — A retired Chicago police detective has turned in his nephew to the FBI for allegedly robbing a downtown bank.

The FBI says Ramses Longstreet is accused of robbing an Associated Bank branch Wednesday. The suspect left behind a cellphone when he fled the bank. After getting descriptions of the robber from witnesses, the FBI released photos of Longstreet.

The federal court filing by the FBI indicates the 42-year-old Longstreet went to the uncle’s home and asked him to hold on to the cash. It was shortly afterward that the uncle was told by Longstreet’s mother she believed her son may have robbed a bank.

On Thursday, the uncle picked up Longstreet on a pretense and took him and the cash to the FBI.

It wasn’t immediately known if Longstreet, who ordered held Thursday, has legal representation.
