On one Facebook fan page, where the California “Geezer Bandit” has 6,798 people who “like this”, fan Carl Randall wrote on Saturday: “So THIS is what happens when the government freezes Social Security COLA raises!! LOL! YOU GO GEEZER BANDIT!!”

Fan Ronnie Israel wrote: “Geezer has the FBI going around in circles, Geezers a pimp!”

The comments came after the elder looking bandit, who appears to be around 70,  hit his 14th bank in the San Diego area on Friday in San Luis Obispo County. The bandit has continued to  dumbfound agents who have been on the hunt since August of 2009.

The bandit, with revolver in tow,  stuck up  the 14th bank — the Heritage Oaks Bank branch in Morro Bay, the FBI said, according to the Los Angeles Times. The Times reported he may have fled in a light-colored, two-door car.

The Geezer Bandit is suspected of robbing 10 banks in San Diego County and one each in Temecula, Bakersfield, Goleta and Morro Bay, the Times reported.

Previously, authorities had said they had not ruled out the possibility that the Geezer Bandit might be a young person wearing a mask to look like a senior citizen.

This would be his 14th robbery since August 2009.

“The agents and detectives who have been working this case since the beginning, strongly believe that this was the work of the Geezer Bandit,” Special Agent Darrell Foxworth of the San Diego FBI office told Fox 5 San Diego.
