Age of California 'Geezer Bandit' in questionAge of California 'Geezer Bandit' in question after FBI says he might be wearing mask
LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Authorities say a robber branded "The Geezer Bandit" because he appeared to be old might actually be wearing a mask.
FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said Friday the man also was seen running away from his latest heist this month.
The disclosures raise questions about the age of the man suspected of holding up 16 California banks from San Luis Obispo to San Diego.
Investigators have been stymied for more than two years by the bandit, previously believed to be in his 60s or 70s.
The most recent robbery was Dec. 2 in San Luis Obispo when a security dye-pack exploded as the man left the bank and sprinted away.
