“Darth Vader” Robs Bank [Photos]

Man dressed as Star Wars villain uses force, direct deposit

Darth Vader robbing a bank? Even with gas prices low, do you have any idea how much gas the Death Star burns through? It gets one parsec per 5,000,000 gallons.

A man dressed as the iconic Star Wars villain robbed a Setauket bank yesterday.


At 11:30 a.m., the Sith Lord entered a Chase bank branch located at 4080 Rte. 347. Rather than drawing his lightsaber (it’s a little hot for a sword made of energy), the robber pulled a gun. He approached the teller and demanded money. The teller, who may or may not have been persuaded by the force, complied. The Dark Lord then fled the bank through the parking lot, heading east.

Darth is described as between 6 feet and 6 feet two inches in height. In addition to a mask, he was also wearing a blue cape and camoflage pants (you try hand-washing an all-black armored suit in outer space).

Detectives and the Rebel Alliance are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
