The NYPD is on the lookout for a man who allegedly stole money from a Dime Bank in Greenpoint.

The incident happened on Jan. 9 at around 1:10 p.m., when the thief walked into the Dime Bank at 814 Manhattan Ave. and went to a bank teller, police said.

The man then passed a note to the teller demanding money, police said. Surveillance video released by the NYPD shows the suspect unfolding a white paper after removing it from his pocket and holding it up to the teller.
