A 28 year old  bank robbery suspect tried to con security guards by wearing an old man mask during the raid, police report.

According to Reports by Mirror.com.uk African-American Benoit Constant, 28, allegedly used a fake white latex bald head sporting wrinkles and grey eyebrows in an attempt to fool detectives.

Police believe he used a fake bomb threat at a YMCA club on December 29 to divert attention away from the Carolinas Telco Federal Credit Union in North Carolina.

The bank robber was seen wearing gloves, a zip-up hoodie, sunglasses and the mask along with a blue and white baseball cap.

He then pointed a gun at the cashier and ordered them to fill a plastic bag up with cash before running off on foot.

Officers later found a bicycle with piles of scattered money at a nearby shopping centre.

Benoit was charged in Texas for giving a false identity and evading police.

But police will extradite him to North Carolina where they say he will be charged with robbery and making a false bomb threat.

He's the second person to be charged in relation to the case.

Police said they linked a silver minivan seen at the YMCA and tracked the licence plate, which led them to Milandra Constant, his alleged accomplice, who was arrested.

They claimed to have found the latex mask and the bag used to carry off the stolen loot inside the vehicle.

Milandra Constant was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and making a false bomb threat.
