09-13-2009, 12:31 AM

A tall, sportily-dressed man in his 70s, with an oxygen bottle over his shoulder and a tube leading to a nose-piece, robbed the San Diego National Bank of an unspecified amount of money this morning, the FBI said.

The man, described as 6-foot-4 and wearing a golf cap and checkered blazer, presented the cashier a note and walked out of the bank with the cash. He was last seen walking briskly away. No weapon was displayed during the incident.

Tellers described the white-haired bandit as wearing glasses, with liver spots on his hands. Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI, (858) 565-1255.

lol, so that's what they call dressing "sportily".

I bet he had his mobility scooter stashed in an ally.

Bet he needed the money for his health care, figured he was done anyways so might as well take a chance.

He'll get maybe 10 years if he's convicted on the robbery charge. But if I was on the jury I'd add an additional 25 for the fricken outfit he was wearing............

Then it again it could be someone younger dressed up. I have seen things on tv where they can make you look exactly like someone with pastes, masks and chit.

Maybe he got a bad fill on his O2, a little N20 in the mix or something.
