Bank Robber Wearing New York Jets Jersey Goes on Crime Spree in Manhattan, Hitting Five Banks in One Hour

New York JetsThe New York Jets have enough problems this summer to concern themselves with on the field. Unfortunately, Rex Ryan might have to be on the lookout for more than just a starting quarterback. He might also be recruited to help New York police stop a serial bank robber.

An unknown person took to Manhattan on Friday for an afternoon crime spree, according to authorities, hitting five banks in the span of an hour. Police say the unarmed robber began his quest for cash at a Chase branch on the Upper East Side at 1 p.m. then went to a second Chase branch shortly thereafter.

Fifteen minutes later, the robber had made it to midtown, where he visited a Capital One bank and a Bank of America down the street from one another. He (or she) finally wrapped up their power hour of misdeeds at another Capital One on Fifth Avenue.

According to police, the robberies were carried out by simply passing a note to a teller demanding money, but the strategy had mixed results. Only two of the five robberies were successful — a 40 percent rate that many Jets fans would love to see from Mark Sanchez on his passing attempts.
