CHICAGO | A Burnham man charged in a Naperville bank robbery is set to appear in federal court on Thursday, according to a news release from the FBI.

Kevin A. Johnson, 30, of the 14300 block of Bensley Avenue, appeared before a federal magistrate judge on Saturday in connection with the robbery of a PNC Bank at 9 E. Ogden in Naperville. He was ordered held until his Thursday court appearance.

According to the FBI, Johnson entered the PNC bank just after 2:30 p.m. Friday demanding money from the teller and threatening to shoot the teller if his demand was not met. Johnson allegedly kept his right hand in his coat pocket, leading the teller to be believe Johnson had a weapon.

Shortly after the robbery, Johnson was arrested at his job in Naperville.

The FBI says Johnson is a suspect in a Jan. 17 robbery of an American Chartered Bank, at 2205 Butterfield Road in Downers Grove. The FBI says a witness reported to police that a car later determined to be registered to Johnson was parked in a residential driveway at about the same time as the robbery. This information and subsequent investigation led to Johnson's arrest, the FBI said. He is not charged in connection with that robbery.

If convicted of the one bank robbery charge, Johnson faces up to 20 years in federal prison.

Downers Grove and Naperville police assisted the FBI in the investigation.
