SETAUKET, N.Y. (WPIX)—Be on the lookout for Darth Vader, with a gun.
That's what police in Long Island are saying after a man robbed a Setauket bank Thursday morning dressed as the Star Wars character.
While the suspect did wear a full Vader helmet and mask for his 11:30 a.m. hit, the rest of his costume was off the mark. Investigators report he was sporting a blue cape and camouflage pants.
The man, who's described as 6 feet, 2 inches tall, was last seen fleeing through a nearby parking lot with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The Star Wars-themed bank job is the latest in a series of odd robberies in the New York area.
On Monday, New York City police arrested a man who robbed a bank with a bouquet of flowers in hand. And investigators are still searching for a woman who's recently robbed retail stores while wearing a cat mask.
