NEW YORK — Police say a busy crook robbed three New York City banks in just 30 minutes.

The holdups happened on Friday afternoon in Brooklyn, all along a road called Kings Highway.

Police tell The New York Times the man never showed a weapon. He simply handed the tellers notes and waited for the money.

Authorities say he walked off with cash from a teller at the first bank, left empty-handed from the second one, but scored again at the third bank.

Police did not say how much was lost as they continue to search for a suspect.
