Darth Vader robs bank
US police are hunting a man who held up a bank while dressed as Darth Vader before escaping on a BMX bike.
The armed robber stormed into the Huntington Bank in Toledo, Ohio, and demanded money from staff while brandishing a semi-automatic pistol, reports The Mirror.
The thief, believed to be in his early to mid-20s, escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash and sped off on his bicycle.
CCTV images show the man dressed in a black hooded sweatshirt, jogging bottoms and wearing a Darth Vader mask.
Police described the robber as being around 6ft tall and about 12 stone. He is not thought to have been carrying a lightsaber.
what do you think?
The Force is after him!
"escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash and sped off on his bicycle." He 'sped' on a BMX?? Are things really that slow in Toledo that a BMX actually constitues a device capable of speeding? Fantastic. Did he make TIE figher noises as he rode off?
Darth Vader on a BMX conjures up quite a ridiculous image.

THESE AREN'T THE DOLLAR BILLS YOU ARE LOOKING FOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bank staff in the US are trained to hand over the cash if somebody threatens them with even a dripping, translucent yellow water pistol.
The police have put out an urgent request for OB1 to contact them, anyone knowing his whereabouts are requested to call the police dept' as soon as possible.
