The Power of the Dark Side: Gun-wielding 'Darth Vader' robs bank

One of the greatest and most iconic villains in cinematic history has struck again. Well, kind of.

A man wearing a Darth Vader mask and dark clothing robbed a Pineville, North Carolina, bank Monday, according to authorities.

Police say the Sith Lord entered the Pineville State Employees Credit Union shortly before noon armed not with a lightsaber, but a long rifle. He demanded money from a bank teller and fled the scene in a four-door gray Chevy Suburban SUV - not a TIE fighter.

The suspect reportedly escaped with thousands of dollars. No one was injured during the robbery.
