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.

However, one of the employees pressed the alarm button and the crook fled the scene empty-handed.

Two hours later, authorities said, the suspect walked into the Capital One Bank, located at 115-20 Jamaica Ave., at 1:06 p.m. and passed a note to a teller demanding money. The teller complied and handed over $17,000. The crook then fled the scene westbound on Jamaica Avenue.

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.
