(Newser) – The frail, bespectacled thief nicknamed the "Geezer Bandit" has struck again. The heister, believed to be in his 70s, waited patiently in line at a California bank before showing the teller a gun and handing over a note demanding money, according to the FBI. He escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash after the robbery, which police believe is his seventh since last August, the Los Angeles Times reports.
