EAST BOSTON (CBS) – A would-be bank robber forgot to check his calendar Monday as he attempted to rob a bank in Maverick Square.

Unfortunately for him, the bank was closed for Columbus Day.

Police say Carlos Leger, 39, was spotted by a passing officer at the bank entrance wearing blue latex gloves, sunglasses and a hat. Leger was allegedly trying to open the locked door.

When officers searched him they found a note that read, “Give Me All The Money. No Dye Pack.”

Police say Leger also had a pillow case with him.

He will be arraigned Tuesday on one count of attempted unarmed robbery.
