Cops are looking for a note-passing thief that stole thousands of dollars after trying to rob two banks in Woodside and Richmond Hill on the same day.

According to police, at 11:06 a.m. on Oct. 16, an unknown man walked into a Chase Bank, located at 59-26 Woodside Ave. After approaching the teller, the suspect handed him a note demanding money.

Cops described the suspect as a white man between the ages of 40 and 50-years-old and standing 6 feet tall. He was last seen wearing a blue jacket, blue jeans and white Nike sneakers.
