Geezer Bandit Struck in La Jolla: FBI

An armed elderly-looking man who robbed a bank inside a grocery a store in La Jolla was the so-called “Geezer Bandit,” according to the FBI.

The bandit entered a Wells Fargo Bank located inside a Vons at 7544 Girard Avenue on September 30 about 6:30 p.m., officials said.

The suspect was armed with a black revolver and wearing large glasses with a gray suit over his thin build, according to the FBI.

He was missing his signature hat, but all the mannerisms and style from this suspect matched that of the "Geezer Bandit," according to the FBI.

He operates in a similar way for each robbery: He doesn't like to draw attention to himself and makes sure there's only one person at the teller. more
