Naughty note

A thief robbed an 86th Street bank on May 12 — passing the teller a demand note before unknowingly taking a sack of cash containing a dye pack.

The teller told police the crook entered the bank between Bay 28th and Bay 29th streets at 9:51 am, simulating a gun in his pocket as he passed her his demand note.

“Give me the money, hurry up,” the anxious robber blurted out. The teller handed him the money bag containing $655, and an incriminating dye pack.
