'Geezer Bandit' bank robber strikes for 16th time, FBI says
December 2, 2011 | 8:36 pm
-- Tony Perry in San Diego

The bank robber known as the Geezer Bandit struck for the 16th time on Friday, the FBI said.

A Bank of America branch in San Luis Obispo was hit late in the day by a gun-waving robber who fit the Geezer Bandit description: a white male in his 60s or 70s, about 6 feet tall, wearing glasses and a hat.

Although most of the robberies attributed to the Geezer Bandit have been in San Diego and its suburbs, others have occurred in Temecula, Bakersfield, Goleta and Morro Bay. The first robbery was in the San Diego suburb of Santee in August 2009.


A $20,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest. Although witnesses have described the bandit as a man of mature years, there has also been speculation that he is wearing a theatrical mask to appear old.
