RANCHO SANTA FE, Calif.—The man the FBI has dubbed the "Geezer Bandit' has hit again.
Authorities say he walked in to a Bank of America branch in Rancho Santa Fe Monday, handed the teller a demand note, and showed a black handgun. It happened at the beginning of the business day around 10 a.m. at 17008 Avenida De Acacias. FBI agent April Langwell said investigators believe he's hit up three other banks in the last two months. He's suspected of robbing the U.S. Bank branch inside the Von's grocery store in Santee on Aug, 28.
Two weeks later, on Sept. 12, he walked in the National Bank branch in La Jolla and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash. Surveillance video showed him carrying an oxygen tank with tubes running up to his nose.
Then two and a half weeks ago, on Oct. 9, he targeted another U.S. Bank inside a Von's grocery store in Carmel Valley.
He's described as a white male between the ages of 60 and 70, stands between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs approximately 150 pounds. In the most recent heist, he was wearing a gray tweed jacket, a black hat, dark colored shirt, dark pants, and dark shoes.
