The robber, dubbed the "Geezer Bandit" by local FBI agents, hit the Bank of America at 7680 Girard Ave in La Jolla just before 6 p.m. The man, thought to be in his 70s, displayed a gun and demanded money from a teller. He left the bank on foot with an unspecified amount of cash, investigators said.
Three different rewards, totaling $16,000 are being offered for information leading the arrest and conviction of the robber.
According to the FBI, he is responsible for robbing four other San Diego County banks:
Anyone with information about the robberies should contact the FBI at 858-565-1255 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-TIPS. You may remain anonymous by calling either telephone number. Because a weapon has been displayed during some of his bank robberies, The "Geezer Bandit" should be considered armed and dangerous.
