LOS ANGELES, Calif. (KTLA) — Spider-Man is in a web of trouble, if police find him.

The LAPD is searching for a man dressed as the popular comic book character, after he allegedly swiped more than $6,000 from a business on Hollywood Boulevard.

Police say the suspect helped himself to a paper bag filled with cash from a 90-year-old employee at Starline Tours.

The incident happened at the company’s Hollywood Boulevard location on Friday.

Officers report that the sticky-fingered Spidey ran up to a Starline Tours business accountant, grabbed the cash and took off.

Officers did a sweep along the street, where actors dressed as superheros regularly set up shop and pose for pictures with tourists.

They detained a couple of different Spider-Man impersonators, but none turned out to be the culprit. For now, Spidey remains on the run.
