MILWAUKEE- Bank robberies continue to rise in Wisconsin.
So far, in 2014, the FBI office in Milwaukee said they are outpacing their counterparts in Chicago.
On Sunday, Milwaukee's Unsolved Bank Robberies profiled a bank robbery at a Pyramax bank in West Allis in January.
The suspect enters the bank dressed in all black and covering his face.
He first asks the teller to exchange a dollar for four quarters.
After that transaction, he passes her a note that says this is a bank robbery.
According to the FBI, he asked for a very specific and oddly low amount of money.
When he gets the money, he also scoops up the quarters and leaves.
It's a strange move because the FBI said that no matter the amount of money taken, the suspect still gets the full investigation from local police and the FBI.
