Darth Vader Robs Bank: Undead Monday

Posted by Grey Monday, August 2, 2010

Another nefarious crime, apart from destroying planets, to the credit of Lord Vader. The Empire must be pretty hard up these days. Something for an otherwise Undead Monday.

"You don't know the power of the dark side!"

Police said the bandit entered the Chase bank branch on Long Island at 11.30am Thursday, brandishing a semi-automatic pistol before demanding money from staff.
CCTV footage released by police showed the 6ft 2in gunman dressed as the Star Wars bad guy, with a costume complete with mask, dark cape and camouflage trousers.

Customers and bank staff initially thought the raid was a joke, with one witness thinking the costume was so amusing he starting joking with the bandit.
“The customer thought it might have been a joke and not a serious attempt at a robbery,” William Lamb, a Suffolk County Detective Sergeant, told the New York Daily News.

But they quickly realised the bandit was serious after he shouted “this is not a joke”, and reportedly becoming involved in a "shoving match" with an onlooker.
He then pointed his gun at customers as he ordered them to the floor.

He escaped on a motorbike from the Setauket branch with an undisclosed amount of cash stuffed in a bag, which featured a New York Yankees logo.

He assaulted another customer who tried to stop him leaving the bank.
Michael Aloisio, who works at another nearby restaurant, told the New York Post: “I thought it was pretty comical, but I guess this guy was pretty serious about needing some money.

“I always liked 'Star Wars,' but I never liked Darth Vader.”


"The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the force."
