PICTURED: Darth Vader Robbing Long Island Bank

So an evil Sith Lord walks into a bank and he says to the teller, he says, "My Tie Fighter is parked outside and she's basically running on empty. Be a dear and fill up the bags with bundles of money that isn't rightfully mine so I can fill up the tank and be on my way?"

At least, that's how I'm assuming it went down, because when you're dressed as Darth Vader and brandishing a handgun, there's probably not a lot of people who'll say no to you. Gothamist reports that a man in a cape and Darth Vader mask entered a Chase bank branch in Setauket at around 11:30 a.m. yesterday. He walked up to the teller and demanded cash. As soon as he'd gotten all the money from the drawer, he fled east through the carpark of the bank.

According to CNN, the 6-foot caped criminal has yet to be apprehended and Suffolk County police are still searching for him.
