Cops are searching for a crook who stole cash from a Flatbush Avenue bank on Wednesday, just days after a string of robberies at three other North Brooklyn banks.

The lout marched into the Chase Bank between Nevins and Livingston streets a little after noon and slipped a teller a note demanding the money, officials said.

The employee complied, handing $2,446 to the nogoodnik, who then fled towards Dekalb Avenue, cops said.

The suspect was last seen wearing a black jacket with red stripes on the sleeves, according to authorities.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.
