Crook robs Manhattan bank, stuffs money in copy of New York Post

His choice of newspaper is downright criminal.

A robber toting a copy of Tuesday’s New York Post stuck up a Chelsea bank, making off with more than $1,000 — and more ink than he bargained for when a dye pack exploded on him, police sources said.

Cops released photos of the crook, who officials say passed a threatening note to a teller at the Amalgamated Bank on Seventh Ave. by W. 26th St. at about 1:40 p.m. Tuesday.

Cops are searching for this man, who is suspected of robbing the Amalgamated Bank on Seventh Ave. by W. 26th St. at about 1:40 p.m. Tuesday.

He used the tabloid as wrapping, tucking his $1,009 score into its pages before walking out and heading south on Seventh Ave., police sources said.

The dye pack, which the teller slipped into the cash, exploded about a half a block away, sources said.

Police describe the bandit as a black man, between 45 and 50 years old and about 5-foot-11, with a goatee. He wore a gray sweater, blue jeans and white sneakers.

Cops are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
