WHEATON, Ill. — Federal authorities say a 51-year-old man being held without bond for allegedly being part of a father-and-son bank robbery team is a disgraced former DuPage County deputy sheriff who was convicted in 1986 of stealing inmate bond money. Louis Howard Early, who now lives in upstate New York, waived his right to a preliminary hearing on his return to Illinois on May 1. Early and his son, 26-year-old Louis S. Early of Lisle, are accused of stealing about $70,000 from two banks in Naperville and Wheaton two months ago. Louis S. Early is free on a $10,000 personal recognizance bond. The father and son face up to 20 years in prison if convicted. Their attorneys did not return weekend telephone calls from the (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald. ______ Copyright 2009 Associated Press. All rights reserved.
