ROCKFORD (WREX) -

A Rockford man is charged in federal court for allegedly robbing a bank over the summer.

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Albert Stallworth, 62, allegedly walked into the Midwest Community Bank at 3963 N. Perryville Road, handed a teller a note demanding money. Stallworth told the teller he had a gun, according to investigators.

He was given $500 in "bait" bills, which the bank had previously recorded the serial numbers and he put them in a brown McDonalds bag. He then allegedly took off in a white Cadillac sedan.

After a months-long investigation, police arrested Stallworth after the teller identified his photo and charges for Stallworth were authorized.

Stallworth made his initial court appearance Friday. He will have a detention hearing on Jan. 17.
