The Geezer Bandit

Have you seen this old man? He's the "Geezer Bandit," a serial bank robber than has robbed three banks so far (once while carrying an oxygen tank!):

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.

I can please all of the people all of the time. I just choose not to.

Seriously, though: the Geezer Bandit?

Why not the Loot Coot? Now that's got a ring to it.

YOu can't please all the people all the time.

While this may not be exactly a 'neat' topic, not everything on this site fits into the exact same categories. This is worthwhile to post here because it is rather unique, how many very old robbers do you know?

Someone will always be unhappy about something posted here, it's human nature.

to taliesyn30: You sir, are a turd in the punchbowl.

And yes, I have dealt with attempted robbery. I've been stabbed, I have had someone try to light me on fire with gas, and I have been assaulted. I have had at least 6 friends murdered, and know at least 5 women who have been raped from age 6 to 26. I have several friends who have been stabbed, shot, and beaten.

I still think this article is neat.
