Police are looking for the man who robbed the Queens County Savings Bank branch in Lindenwood Saturday morning.

A man, whom police described as being white and in his 40s, walked into the branch located at 82-10 153 Ave., directly across the street from the Lindenwood Shopping Center at about 10:30 a.m. Saturday, approached a teller and passed a note demanding money. The suspect told the teller in the note that he had a bomb strapped to his body and that he would blow up the building if she didn’t comply. The teller gave him an undisclosed amount of cash and a dye pack.

The suspect then fled on foot and police later found the exploded dye pack a block away from the scene of the robbery on 82nd Street.
