Several Evanston police cars and an evidence technician’s van were spotted outside the National City Bank branch on Chicago Avenue downtown this morning.

A passerby tells Evanston Now she saw crime scene tape being removed from outside the bank and the police units pulling out.

Update 12:15 p.m.:

Evanston Police Commander Tom Guenther now says police received a call of a suspicious person at the bank, but it turned out there was no robbery or other criminal activity at the site.
