Got ID? Teller's Request Stops Heist

Police say a would-be bank robber in New Jersey walked away after the teller asked for some identification.

A man wearing a hooded sweatshirt walked into the Santander Bank branch along Brewers Bridge Road in Jackson Township Wednesday afternoon and handed the teller a note asking for money.

Lt. Steven Laskiewicz tells the Asbury Park Press the teller told the man to remove the hood and show some ID.

“It was reported that a male subject had entered the bank and passed a note to a teller asking for a sum of money. When the teller told the male, who was wearing a gray, hooded sweatshirt, to remove the hood and also asked for identification, the male claimed he did not have any and then left the bank,” Laskiewicz told the paper.

The same bank was robbed on Valentine's Day by a man who handed a teller a note saying he had a gun.
