Suffolk County police are investigating a bank robbery that occurred Thursday morning at a bank in Farmingdale and authorities say they believe it's the same man who robbed banks in Deer Park and Commack over the past week. 

On Thursday, detectives say the man entered Bethpage Federal Credit Union, located at 1033 Route 109, at 9:30 a.m. and approached a teller with a note demanding cash. The teller gave the man cash from the drawer, and he fled on foot.

The suspect was described as approximately 5-foot-10, between 30 and 35 years old, bald with a medium build and a thin beard. He was wearing blue jeans and a T-shirt.

"Based on witness descriptions and surveillance videos, it appears that it might be the same suspect in all three robberies," a police spokesman told Patch, referring to robberies of a Bethpage Federal Credit Union in Commack on Tuesday and of a Capital One bank in Deer Park last Saturday. 

Anyone with information about any of the robberies is asked to call anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.

Looks like he's wearing the popular bank robber silicone mask: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2108276/Bank-robbers-stump-NYPD-life-like-masks-look-white-black-Hispanic.html

Damn, Jason Kidd, I know the Nets got bumped out of the playoffs in the second round but that's no reason to go robbing banks!
