LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — You have probably heard the saying "If at first you don't succeed, try try again."

That appears to have been the case on Wednesday for a want-to-be bank robber.

The first attempted robbery happened at about 11:45 a.m. March 27 at the Wells Fargo Bank in Boulder City. A man in gray clothing approached a bank teller and appears to hand her a note. The man then ran away.
