    The NYPD says a man dressed as an armored truck guard walked out of a check-cashing business with $15,000 in cash.

    Police say the suspect walked into Lorenzo's Enterprises in Queens last week, said he was there for a pickup and was handed the cash.

    They say he was wearing a GARDA Armored Courier uniform.

    The Daily News reports that workers at the check-cashing place didn't suspect anything until an actual guard showed up hours later from the same armored truck company.

    The suspect remains at large.
