An man authorities call the "geezer bandit" robbed his fifth bank this week in San Diego County.

FBI officials officials said the man robbed a Bank of America in La Jolla on Monday evening, brandishing a gun and demanding money from a teller.

Since August, the man is suspected of robbing banks in San Diego, Rancho Santa Fe and Santee.

The robber is described as a thin white man with gray hair in his 70s, between 5 feet, 10 inches and 6 feet, 3 inches tall. Because he has used a gun, he should be considered armed and dangerous, agents said.
