DO YOU KNOW THIS MAN? The FBI this morning released a surveillance photo of a man who robbed an Essex County bank an hour after he botched a holdup at another.

The first attempt, at a Wells Fargo on Pleasant Valley Way in West Orange, failed around 5 o’clock last night.

An hour later, he robbed a PNC Bank on Bloomfield Avenue in Caldwell, the FBI said.

He’s described as black, thin, about 5’6″ – 5’8″ and 140 pounds, in his late 20s and clean shaven, wearing sunglasses and gloves.

Anyone with information on either holdup is urged to contact West Orange police, Caldwell police or the FBI: 973.792.3000.

The bureau also reminded citizens never to take a chance trying to catch a criminal — dial 911.
