EDEN, N.Y. (CBS/AP) Police in upstate NY say they are looking for a bank robber who forgot a pretty basic part of the whole bank robbery thing: putting on a mask.
Police said a robbery suspect had a dust mask around his neck but didn't pull it over his face when he walked into an HSBC branch Wednesday afternoon in the town of Eden, 15 miles south of Buffalo.
Surveillance video shows the man walking into the bank and handing a teller a note that police said demanded money. The video also shows the dust mask hanging around the man's neck.
After the man hands the note to the teller, he answers his cell phone, then grabs the note and runs out of the bank.
Police speculate that the call came from the suspect's get-away driver, letting him know that he forgot to put on his mask.
Despite the assistance the suspect gave to police, he remains at large.
