An elderly man nicknamed the "Geezer Bandit" has allegedly robbed his 14th bank in California. The suspect has been tied to a Friday afternoon robbery at Heritage Oaks Bank in Morro Bay, according to ABC7. The robber "pointed a revolver at two tellers," in the branch, and "threatened them and demanded money."The suspect is a white male, between 60 and 70 years old, and is about 190 pounds and approximately 6-feet tall. Some reports, however, indicate he is wearing a mask, which means his appearance as elderly could be a disguise--and his nickname therefore not exactly accurate, like Fontana's Granny Bandit.

The "Geezer Bandit" is thought to be responsible for a string of robberies that began in 2009.

Anyone with information about the "Geezer Bandit" is urged to call FBI at (858) 565-1255.
