He's back - the Geezer Bandit - the FBI on his tail...



He's back - the Geezer Bandit - the FBI on his tail...

Six bank robberies and five months later, the FBI in San Diego is still hunting for a mystery man in his 60s or 70s who's been famously dubbed the "Geezer Bandit."

His latest stickup came on Wednesday at the San Diego National Bank around 5:50 p.m. According to the FBI, the notorious robber was armed with a silver and black semiautomatic pistol when he handed the teller a demand note.

He walked off with an undisclosed amount of money.

Rail-thin, clad in a baseball cap and brandishing a gun, the man held up his first bank in San Diego County on Aug. 28. Up until mid-November, he had been robbing a new bank in San Diego County every two to four weeks, authorities said.

But this time, he waited about two and a half months before pulling off another robbery. His last heist had been Nov. 16 at a Bank of America branch.

The FBI in San Diego did not immediately respond to questions as to why the description of the "Geezer Bandit" had changed since last year. Back then, authorities described him as being in his 70s, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet 3 inches, about 150 pounds.

After Wednesday's stickup, the FBI described him in a press release as being 60 to 70 years old, about 6 feet tall and 190 pounds.

On Wednesday, he wore a white baseball cap and a white sweatshirt with a hoodie, according to the FBI. In November, he was wearing a blue baseball cap and a blue blazer.

Authorities are taking it all very seriously.

Three different rewards totaling $16,000 are being offered in the case. And for a while, in December, the FBI's San Diego office prominently displayed his photo on the homepage of its Web site along with the headline: "Have You Seen This Man?" A press release was attached.

The FBI in December described the "Geezer Bandit" as someone who tries to be low-key and draws little attention during the robberies.

He discreetly passes a note and demands cash. The only other person who knows what's going on is the teller, they say.

"He's not doing anything to draw attention," FBI agent Darrell Foxworth said back then. "He walks out with the same speed he walks in."
