'Geezer Bandit' Robs Bank No. 13 In California
Authorities are searching for the “Geezer Bandit,” an elderly man in a blazer, dark pants and baseball cap who reportedly robbed his 13th California bank on Friday at about 5:30 p.m., threatening a teller with "a pistol" and leaving with cash, reports CBS Local.
The bank robber struck for the first time in Santa Barbara hitting a Bank of America, after an alleged 11 robberies in the San Diego area beginning in 2009, and a Bakersfield robbery in November, according to a Saturday news release from the FBI.
Authorities believe the man to be in his 70s, however, after some witness reported that the man was wearing a mask, the FBI is considering the possibility that the man’s "elderly features" could be a disguise.
