BRONX (PIX11) -- A thief used a fake explosive device to scare his victim into giving him cash, police said.
The man walked into International Money Transfer at 4264 White Plains Road in the Bronx Tuesday around 7:35 p.m. He displayed the dummy explosive device and placed it on the counter, police said.
He then told the clerk at the store he had three minutes to give him money, but made away with nothing. The suspect -- described as 5-foot-7-inches and 140 pounds -- fled the scene empty handed.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
