ABC News':  Brennan McCord reports:

Well folks, he’s done it again.  Authorities say the serial robber known as the “Geezer Bandit” struck for the ninth time on Tuesday, robbing a Bank of America in Santee, California around 9:45am. 

The man, believed to be in his 60’s or 70’s, walked up to the teller, pulled out a revolver and presented a note demanding cash, according to the FBI.

Witnesses said he has thin plastic tubes in his nose like those used to administer medicinal oxygen and wore a tan baseball cap, sunglasses, and a dark blazer and zip-up sweater.

 “All the departments are talking about it.  We are trying to find him,” a representative from the San Diego Police Media Relations Department for the city government told ABC News. 

They aren’t the only ones talking about the bandit.  There are two Facebook pages full of pictures, videos, and online articles about him.  Between the two pages he has over 400 fans who have posted comments such as “Git them banks!! they had it comin” and “Go Geezer!”

The San Diego Police Department is looking into who has created these Facebook pages and if they could have been created by the geezer himself.
Police believe that this is the same man who has robbed eight other banks in La Jolla, Rancho Santa Fe,

San Diego and Santee since August.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at (858) 565-1255 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous.
