Darth Vader robs Long Island bank, Obi-Wan feels great disturbance in the Force

How odd:

A bank robber dressed as Star Wars villain Darth Vader made off with an undetermined amount of cash after pointing a handgun at startled tellers inside a Chase bank branch on Long Island.

Detectives say the stickup man walked into the bank shortly before noon Thursday wearing a full head mask and a blue cape. The only part of the uniform that was out of place were his camouflage pants. And that handgun -- no light saber...

The only other description of the suspect was his height: between 6 feet and 6-foot-2. He was last seen running across a parking lot.

Towards his destiny, perhaps. Wherever that may take him.

"In this photo released July 22, 2010 by the Suffolk County Police Department, a person wearing a Darth Vader mask and cape is captured on surveillance camera robbing a Chase bank in Setauket, N.Y., Thursday, July 22."
