On Long Island, an alleged bank robber who wears a wig as a disguise is under arrest.

Frank Brugge of Rockville Centre has been charged with robbery in the third degree.

Police say the 58-year-old suspect entered a Capital One bank in North Lynbrook and gave the teller a note.

The teller then handed over some money and the suspect fled.

An off-duty police officer followed the suspect and saw him take off his wig and throw it away.

The officer then arrested Brugge.
