The surveillance photos show a white man in his 30s, about 5-feet-11 inches, with an average build. He is wearing a dark-colored Quicksilver brand baseball cap, sunglasses, a dark hooded jacket, jeans and sneakers.

Is newsday now going to name the race of all suspects?

Everyone should always look Long and Hard at anyone entering a bank with sunglasses on, wearing a hat. This is the modern bandits way of replacing a mask. In fact why not make it illegal to even enter a bank and not immediately remove sunglasses ? What harm could such a law do ? Who needs to wear sunglasses indoors, other than a bank robber ?

I don't know, maybe because banks don't use $50 million satellites behind the teller windows.

Exactly. Especially a white guy on foot, in Riverhead, with a bag full of cash. Maybe he's heading to the new Riverhead ski area.

When the new ski area opens, there will be thousands of people wearing hats and masks around Riverhead.

The bank robbers will then have a field day, and never be caught.

Then again maybe they were not. Dark Glasses could be taken off upon entering a bank, and replaced with the reading glasses.

" Suspect Sought", so the guy in the bank video, with the bank robber disguise is 'Suspected' of being the Bank Robber ? Then who else is 'Suspected', if this guy in the video isn't the F'in Bank Robber, and only, maybe a suspected Bank Robber, then who the F is ? I love the bull Skit terminology, he's not a suspect, that photo is the F'in Guy who ROBBED THE BANK ! Where does the 'Maybe' come from, he's not 'maybe' the Bank Robber, He is The F'in Bank Robber ! When are we gonna start saying REALITY again, and why the F, Did it stop ?

I know! What is WRONG with people? His race was mentioned, because he is indeed WHITE- a suspect description. And Riverhead is very mixed, and white people commit crime all of the time. The ignorance and racism out there is astounding! So illogical! It makes me sick.

The paper can get sued for stating that the guy did it, until he is actually proved guilty in court.
