LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The so-called “Geezer Bandit” is developing a cult following on facebook — 6,o00 fans and counting — and the FBI is not amused.

In the least.

The bank robber, 13 heists and counting, has struck up and down the California coast, in mostly San Diego and Santa Barbara counties.

The “Geezer’s” cult following now also includes mugs, t-shirts and many messages of support posted on his facebook page…or at least a page devoted to his antics.

The FBI says they aren’t sure if the “Geezer” is actually a senior citizen or a younger man wearing a mask.
