NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- He might get put away by his penmanship.

Police say handwriting on threatening notes tied a serial bank robber to a pair of attempted heists in Brooklyn.

Christopher Kelly, 41, allegedly left the notes at a Bank of America and a Chase Bank where tellers refused to entertain his demands.

Cops say Kelly left empty-handed after tellers walked away from him during robbery attempts on February 20 and 21.

The tellers kept the notes, and detectives used them to tie Kelly to the crimes.

Kelly previously served time after being convicted in a 2016, bank robbery spree in the Bronx. He was paroled in August, after a 9 month sentence.
