This goon’s payday came early.

A thief raided the Captial One Bank on Fulton Street on Thusday afternoon, taking an undisclosed amount of cash.

Workers at the bank between Boerum Place and Pearl Street said the thief entered the bank at 2:50 pm and ran off after threatening a teller.

Cops did not say if the thief flashed a weapon — or how much money was taken — but a worker at the bank said no one was harmed.

“Everyone here is all right,” the employee said before hanging up on a reporter.

Reach reporter Thomas Tracy at or by calling (718) 260-2525.

The city needs to put up higher fencing with barbed wire around the projects and ghetto neighborhoods. The animals shouldn’t be allowed to leave their decrepit grimy areas.

Wow! That was tried once. They called those fenced in areas the ghetto. Trolls welcome.

I wonder if the thief asked, in a gruff voice, "What's in your wallet??!!!" as they ran out of Cap 1!

I can't believe someone wrote "jigs" that bothers me more than the crime being committed.
