A man in a wheelchair took a Queens bank for a ride Monday afternoon, robbing it of more than $1,000, cops said.

The heist happened about 2p.m. at the Santander Bank on Broadway in Astoria.

The man in his 20s, wearing jeans and a gray hoodie passed a note to a
teller (below). The suspect didn’t flash a weapon, but the teller handed
over $1,212, cops said.

That's impressive. He's both the stick up man and the wheel man all rolled into one.

$1200 from a bank heist?

The average is less than $5,000 according to FBI statistics and a "large" take is considered anything over $8,000.

It makes sense, I mean he can park the getaway car all the way up at the front of the parking lot.

At least he picked a bank that was handicap accessible.  
A single stair could have foiled his bank robbery.
