FBI still seeking help catching 'Geezer Bandit'; $20,000 reward offered

December 15, 2010 | 11:28 am

Surveillance still of "Geezer Bandit" during April robbery in Vista. The FBI on Wednesday renewed its plea for the public's help in finding one of the region's more elusive crooks: the "Geezer Bandit."

The FBI and a coalition of banks are offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to a conviction of the robber wanted for 12 bank robberies since August 2009: 10 in San Diego County, one in Riverside County and -- the latest one -- in Bakersfield on Nov. 12.

In the Bakersfield robbery, one witness thought the robber was wearing a "Halloween-style old man" mask. In other robberies, he was described as between 60 and 70 years old, often in a blue blazer, baseball cap and dark pants.
