Police in Iowa are looking for a would-be bank robber who showed up at two West Des Moines branches before they even opened.
A security recording shows a man wearing a bandanna over his face trying to enter a Marine Credit Union branch at around 8.15am, nearly three hours before it opened. Sergeant Tony Giampolo said employees in the car park watched the man yank on the doors before fleeing upon realising they were locked.
A similarly dressed man then tried to enter a nearby First National Bank branch at around 8.45am, but it was not scheduled to open until 9am. The man fled when he spotted an officer inside who was alerting staff about the earlier robbery attempt.

The Hollyoaks actor called the carpets his "biggest waste of money" and admitted he had been trying to bid for Paul Weller's guitar, but got confused between lots.
He told The Sun: "I came back into the room just as they mentioned that as the next lot, so I eagerly put my hand up but it wasn't for the guitar - now I've got Madonna's rugs rolled up in my dad's garage."

The deputy leader of an Australian political party has been forced to end his nine-year career in parliament after discovering he had technically never been a senator.
Scott Ludlam, the 47-year-old deputy leader of the Greens party, said he was "personally devastated" to learn that he was a citizen of New Zealand as well as Australia, which made him ineligible for the senate job he has held since July 2008. The constitution says a "citizen of a foreign power" is not eligible to be elected to the Australian parliament.
Born in Palmerston North in New Zealand, he moved to Perth, Australia, when was three, and became an Australian as a teenager. He said he had not realised New Zealand citizenship "might be something that sticks to you in that way", adding: "I apologise unreservedly for this. This is an oversight that was avoidable and it's something I should have fixed up."

Tensions flared after officials explained there were no jobs yet on the 1.9 billion dollar (£1.5 billion) project.
The fake flyer specifically targeted black men and women, and executives promised they were working on an agreement to address minority hiring. Police had to close off access to the building's car parks after the size of the crowd ballooned.
