THE GEEZER BANDIT STRIKES AGAIN!

san-diego-geezer-bandit This man is crazy! I don’t know how this dude has gotten away with this so many times. I guess it’s because he’s old and people just assume that he’s not capable of doing anything this terrible. I hope they catch the bastard.

Via Mercury News:

FBI officials are chalking up another San Diego-area bank job to the gray-haired robbery suspect they’ve nicknamed the "Geezer Bandit."

The bureau says the man, who wears prescription glasses and appears to be in his 70s, pulled off his 10th heist since August Monday at a US Bank branch in Poway. He’s accused us handing a teller a demand note while threatening her with a revolver, then fleeing with an undisclosed sum of cash.

The suspect is believed responsible for holding up banks in La Jolla, Rancho Santa Fe, Vista and other San Diego-area locations.

Law enforcement officials are asking for the public’s help to identify him. Authorities also are offering $16,000 in rewards for information that leads to his arrest and conviction.

Prune juice!

Via The Los Angeles Times Local Blog:

The San Diego County bank robber dubbed “the Geezer Bandit” by the FBI has struck again.

He is suspected of robbing the California Bank and Trust on Tuesday in suburban Vista — his seventh bank job since late August.

His age, estimated to be between 60 and 70 years, has given rise to the FBI nickname. He often wears headgear.

On Tuesday, he appeared to wear a Padres cap. He waited patiently in line and then flashed a revolver at the teller and demanded money, the FBI said.

Three banks have offered rewards totaling $16,000 for his arrest. Tipsters can call the FBI at (858) 565-1255 or San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
