FBI: `Geezer Bandit' apparently strikes again

SAN DIEGO (AP) - California's so-called Geezer Bandit apparently has struck again.

The FBI says the latest heist -- number 16 -- was Friday at a Bank of America branch in downtown San Luis Obispo.

The gray-haired robber approached the teller counter, pointed a revolver pistol at the teller and demanded money. The teller complied and the robber left with an undisclosed amount.

The FBI says the most of the robberies, which began in 2009, have occurred in San Diego County.

The Geezer Bandit is described as 60 to 70 years old and often wears a Navy-colored blazer, baseball cap and dark pants.

Friday's holdup comes just over two months after the suspect allegedly robbed a Wells Fargo branch inside the Vons grocery store in La Jolla on Sept. 30.
