Thieves plundered two Downtown Brooklyn banks in separate incidents last week.

In the first case, a man held up a Fulton Street bank on April 2 at around 2:15 pm.

The thief told the bank teller in the Fulton Mall to “hurry up,” and passed a note that said, “Stacks of hundreds, stacks of fifties. No alarm. Don’t be a hero.”

The employee complied, giving the bandit $1,320, which he calmly stuck in his pocket.

The second robbery occurred in a Montague Street institution near the corner of Court Street on April 4.

This robber also passed a note that said, “Don’t signal anyone. Put $5,000 in an envelope and keep your hands where I can see them.” The teller protested, “I don’t have that kind of money.” She did, however, give him $400 — and a dye-pack.

Window treatment

A man got hosed while taking a shower at his Atlantic Avenue apartment on March 28.

He cracked open his window before going to the bathroom to freshen up at 11:30 am. But when he returned, the portal was wide open and his digital camera and $55 were missing from his residence, which is between Bond and Nevins streets.

Open door

A woman’s unlocked Dean Street apartment was burgled on April 3.

The 46-year-old resident said she was not home from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm, during which time someone took a laptop, Playstation and Xbox from the abode, which is between Smith Street and Boerum Place.

A neighbor said she saw a man in the apartment during that time, but assumed it was a family member.
