Cops are on the hunt for three separate thieves who stole cash from three different North Brooklyn banks since the start of the new year.
On Monday, a sneak walked into a Roosevelt Savings Bank in Bedford-Stuyvesant and demanded some bills from the teller, according to officials, who said the clerk complied and handed the nogoodnik $4,500.
The punk fled the Broadway bank around 4:20 pm, and was last spotted on Lewis Avenue between Greene and Lexington avenues wearing dark sunglasses, a black peacoat, and a black baseball cap with “Brooklyn” written in white on the front, cops said.
The next day, another good-for-nothing strolled into a Dime Bank on Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint and slipped the teller a note around 1:10 pm demanding some green, police said.
The clerk acquiesced and passed the ne’er-do-well an unknown amount of cash, and then the jerk ran out towards Calyer Street, according to authorities, who said he was last seen wearing a dark-colored jacket, gray sweatshirt, black knit hat, and black-and-white scarf.
And on Jan. 2, a third worm committed a similar stickup when he waltzed into the Ponce DeLeon Federal Bank on Smith Street in Boerum Hill at 10:50 am and slid a teller a note that said “$5,000 quickly,” police said.
The victim cooperated — but not entirely — and handed $1,540 to the goon wearing an orange bandana around part of his face, who then fled, cops said.
Authorities couldn’t say whether the same note-passing baddie terrorized the Greenpoint and Boerum Hill banks, because the technique is common in holdups.
“That MO is something we have seen many, many times in the past,” said a police department spokesman. “It’s a tactic that is used a lot.”
