Darth Vader has really fallen from prominence, as he robbed a North Carolina bank at gunpoint.

A man dressed from head-to-toe as Darth Vader brandished what appears to be a rifle, after storming into the State Employees Credit Union in Pineville around 11:45 a.m on Monday. He demanded cash from the teller, who complied.

Police didn't say exactly how much Vader made off with, but it was in the thousands.
