FBI Suspects “Geezer Bandit” Ain’t Such a Geezer: Looking for Customers Who Bought Elderly Mask

Dumfounded by the success of the “Geezer Bandit” — a prolific bank robber who appears to be in his 70s — the FBI in Southern California  is now aggressively pursuing the theory that he is actually a younger man who has donned a mask while sticking up 16 banks in the San Diego area since August 2009.

The LA Times reports that investigators in the case have served a search warrant at a costume store in the San Luis Obispo area. The warrant asks for a list of customers who bought a mask known as “The Elder.”

After the last robbery on Dec. 2 in San Luis Obispo, Calif., the FBI issued a statement, according to the paper, stating:

“The robber was described as someone who appeared to be an elderly white male, but may have been wearing a synthetic-like mask and gloves to conceal his true physical characteristics.”
