A man claims he tried to turn himself in after robbing a bank — but police told him to come back later.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Police officials in Albany are looking into the matter.

Darrell Lewis says he robbed an Albany bank Nov. 1 and used the money to buy crack cocaine. After an all-night crack binge, he says he walked into a police station and told someone at the front desk that he was the man who robbed the bank.

Lewis told authorities that a woman told him to come back later.

Instead, Lewis walked to another Albany police station and turned himself in there. While being questioned by detectives, Lewis mentioned being turned away at the first station.

Officials say they’re investigating his claim.
