Darth Vader makes a hasty cash withdraw

Speaking of Darth Vader (see post below), I’m almost through my 7-movie Star Wars set at home. I went movie-chronological order, starting with the later trio of Episode I, II, and III — except I threw in the CGI ‘Clone Wars’ between II and III, and then continued with the old Episodes IV, V, and tonight (or this weekend) I’ll finish off with The Return of the Jedi, Episode VI.

As such, I found the post regarding the iPhone 4, and also this Darth-Vader-bank-robbery to be quite humorous.

Long Island may be far from the Death Star, but that didn’t stop Darth Vader from paying a less-than-friendly visit to a bank in East Setauket, New York. Or at least he looked like Darth Vader, except for the camouflage pants.

The costumed man, with a mask and cape, entered a Chase bank Thursday morning and demanded cash. Although he didn’t have a lightsaber, his gun was more than enough to persuade the teller to hand over the money. The caped criminal then fled east through the bank’s parking lot. Suffolk County police said they are searching for the man, described as around 6 feet tall.
