WEST DES MOINES, Iowa  --  West Des Moines police say a would-be bank robber remembered his disguise this week, but forgot one thing: to check the bank's hours.

Police believe the same man tried robbing two banks on Wednesday morning; however, neither location was open for business yet and he couldn't get through the locked doors.

Anyone with information about the attempted robberies is asked to call West Des Moines police.
