Gramps

A bank robber thought to be in his 70s has struck for a fourth time in San Diego County, law enforcement officials said.

Dressed in black hat and sunglasses, the robber presented a threatening note to a teller at the Bank of America branch in Rancho Santa Fe on Monday. He escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.

The same robber is suspected of hitting banks Aug. 28 in Santee, Sept. 12 in La Jolla, and Oct. 9 in the Carmel Valley neighborhood of San Diego.

As in previous cases, the robber claimed to have a gun but none was seen, officials said.
