Police in New Jersey are searching for a man who tried to rob a bank, then ran off and dumped his clothing in the trash without taking any money.

The suspect, a man about 55 to 65 years old, walked into the Bank of America branch at 188 South Street in Morristown at about 1:15 p.m. Saturday, police said.

He walked up to a teller and stated he was committing a robbery -- then ran away before taking any cash.

The man had short white hair and was clean-shaven, police said. He was wearing a jean trucker-style hat with a logo and a jean jacket.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect is asked to contact Morristown Police at 973-538-2200.
