Masked man robs bank in San Luis Obispo

April 27, 2019

Police are looking for a suspect wearing an “old man” mask and sunglasses who robbed the U.S. Bank in San Luis Obispo on Friday. [Cal Coast Times]

Shortly before 5 p.m., the male suspect entered the U.S. Bank at 3991 South Higuera Street, in the shopping center with Trader Joe’s and Food 4 Less. He demanded money from a bank teller, which he then placed in a dark-colored satchel with white stitching and a zipper.

After securing the money, the suspect fled the bank. Officers arrived in the area and searched the shopping center and an adjacent neighborhood, but failed to locate the suspect.

In addition to the mask and sunglasses, the robber was wearing all dark clothing and gloves. Police are circulating surveillance images of the suspect and are asking anyone who has information about the robbery to call police at (805) 781-7312 or Crime Stoppers at (805) 549-STOP.

No one was injured during the robbery.

That’s one hellova mask. Blow up the photo. It’s the best mask I’ve ever seen. Statistically, most bank robbers get away with it but don’t gat much money, like around $1,500 or so. 75% get away but odds catch up to them eventually. Could this be the infamous Geezer Bandit’s return?


Looks like a “gentleman” I know up here; no worries though, it’s not. I don’t understand why anyone would rob a bank as the risk to reward is so skewed towards the risk factor it’s not worth it.


lt would be hilarious if they caught this guy and he turned out to be an old bald man missing a finger on his right hand.


Uncle Fester strikes again.

It’s all phony federal reserve money anyway. They can just print more.


So, I guess you don’t use it ’cause it’s phony? So how do you pay for stuff, or do you?
