Is the Calif. “Geezer Bandit” Really Much Younger? The FBI Says That’s a Possibility

It’s not the first time this theory has emerged. But it seems to be gaining some traction.

CBS in Los Angeles is reporting that the FBI again is saying that the elderly looking bank robber dubbed the “Geezer Bandit” — he’s robbed 15 banks in the San Diego area — may actually be a younger person wearing an elaborate latex mask from a special effects company.

CBS reports that a bank teller who saw the bandit up close agrees that it may be a mask.

“Something didn’t look normal, it wasn’t a normal face,” said the witness, according to CBS. “He came in, requested money and passed a note and said ‘If you don’t, I will murder you and everyone else in the bank.'”

The man appears to be in at least in his 70s, according to FBI photos.
