A greedy bank robber starred in his own criminal version of “Groundhog Day” -- holding up the same downtown Sovereign branch on three consecutive days before he was finally busted yesterday, police sources told The Post yesterday.
Charles Burnett, 29, allegedly stole a total of more than $26,000 before cops thwarted his unprecedented crime spree.
“Maybe a handful of times I’ve heard of a guy come back a few weeks later,” said a law-enforcement source. “I’ve never heard of a guy come back two days in a row, let alone three.”

To show he was serious, he produced a brown paper bag and banged it on the counter to indicate it had something heavy, and threatening, inside. The teller gave him $2,258 and he walked out while peeling off a blue glove.
The next day he came back at 10:54 a.m., aggressively cut the line and demanded loot.
