‘Geezer Bandit’ Robs Bank, Leaves His Day Planner Behind
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Authorities say the “Geezer Bandit” targeted yet another bank last week and left some important evidence behind.
The suspect, who robbed a Bank of America branch in San Luis Obispo on Friday, dropped his day planner in the parking lot.
During the robbery, a teller placed some cash and red dye in a bag, which the suspect put in his day planner before running off.
“I think the shock of the dye pack actually exploding in the bag created a diversion enough for him to obviously drop both the money and the other items that he was carrying,” Capt. Chris Staley of the San Luis Obispo Police Department said.
The FBI says the “Geezer Bandit” is responsible for robbing banks in Temecula, Bakersfield and Goleta.
A $20,000 reward has been offered for information leading to his arrest and conviction.
