“Geezer Bandit” of California, move over. You’ve got some serious competition from the “Grandad Bandit” when it comes to aging stickup men.

The FBI said today the “Grandad Bandit,” a bald man in his 50s or 60s who has a little paunch, could be responsible for at least 21 bank robberies in at least 11 states since last year. One FBI press release described him as being 6 feet tall and 210 to 230 pounds; another pegged him at about 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet 2 inches and about 230 pounds.

The FBI, for some reason, is spelling “granddad” with only two Ds instead of three.

Regardless of how his moniker is spelled, his number of bank heists far surpasses the Geezer Bandit, who is suspected of pulling off nine robberies in the San Diego area since Aug. 28, 2009. The Geezer Bandit is described as being 60 to 70, though he appears in FBI photos to be at least in his 70s.
