The NYPD has arrested a man for attempting (unsuccessfully) to rob three local banks, two on the Lower East Side and one on Broadway near Astor Place.
"This was a very bad bank robber," a police source told The Post, who reported that cops arrested Richard Callison, 22, of Oradell, N.J., near 14th Street and Third Avenue.
During his attempted robbery Tuesday at the Bank of America on Delancey Street:
[He] also failed to make off with any dough, despite passing the teller a note that said: “Give me all the big bills, make the wrong move and you will get shot.”
The missive ended with the words: “Rapido, rapido.”
The teller was not intimidated by the note, and simply locked her drawer and walked away from the window, leaving the crook standing there empty handed, police sources said.
Neither here nor there but the suspect does have a passing resemblance to Spaulding Smails from "Caddyshack."
