the furloughs did affect lax and a handful of flights are expected to be delayed here because of slower traffic down there. i'm jeff bush at sfo, kron four news. >> a suspect is on the loose after an attempted bank robbery in burlingame goes wrong. police say the bad guy's disguise fell apart while holding up the bank of america. kron 4's alecia reid reports. >> reporter: take a good look at this photo. the man you see is accused of trying to rob the bank of america on el camino real. police say on thursday he walked up to a teller and passed her a threatening letter demanding money. as she scrambled to get funds together, he flashed a gun tucked in his waist and urged her to move fasterwearing a beanie, glasses, and plaid shirt, the suspect had on what appears to be a dreadlock wig, and his fake mustache started falling off during the holdup. >> this is funny. this story is too funny >> mustache falling off and he didn't do any serious harm so that's great news. all's well that ends well i guess. while waiting for the teller to hand over the cash, a fellow bank employee walked over. police say the suspect raced out of the bank and headed towards chapin avenue. he's described as a man in his 50's, 6 feet tall and skinny. >> there was a horrible incident here on burlingame avenue a few years ago when the bank manager was killed,
