HE MIGHT be old, but that hasn't stopped the elderly bank robber dubbed the "geezer bandit" from needing a calender. Quite how the brazen thief, wanted in more than six heists will know which financial institution to rob next is unclear.
But investigators are now forensically examining a day planner that the thief dropped on their last job at a Bank of America in San Luis Obispo, CA.
During the robbery, a teller placed some cash and red dye in a bag, which the suspect placed in his day planner before running off.
Capt. Chris Staley of the San Luis Obispo police told CBS LA: "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.
The FBI also recently revealed that the masked robber may, in fact, not be a "geezer" at all, and could even be a woman.
Whoever they are, the "Geezer Bandit" is wanted for robbing banks in Temecula, Bakersfield and Goleta.
A $20,000 reward has been offered for information leading to his - or her - arrest and conviction.
