EDEN, N.Y. – Note to would-be bank robbers: when robbing a bank, be sure to put on your mask. Police said a robbery suspect had a dust mask around his neck but didn't pull it over his face when he walked into an HSBC branch Wednesday afternoon in the town of Eden, 15 miles south of Buffalo.
The bank's surveillance video shows the man walking into the bank and handing a teller a note that police said demanded money. The video also shows a dust mask that remains hanging around the man's neck.
While handing the note to the teller, the man answers his cell phone, then grabs the note and runs out of the bank.
Police speculate that the call came from the suspect's get-away driver, alerting him that he forgot to put on his mask.
The suspect remains at large.
