Disguises proved key in a successful bank robbery on Long Island.

Shortly after the Chase Bank in East Rockaway closed for the day, a man in a FedEx uniform and a man dressed as a Chase employee entered.

The armed men threatened the three employees inside with semi-automatic weapons, tied up their hands and forced them into the bank vault.

"One subject took the personal banker into his office and kept him there at gunpoint," Nassau County police inspector Kenneth Lack said. "The other subject took the other two employees to the vault, where they had the bank manager open the safe and removed currency from the vault."

The suspects got away by taking the bank manager's car from the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
