Does the geezer bandit have a fan club?

From reports at the links below:

He's not Bonnie, nor is he Clyde. Also not Dillinger or D.B. Cooper.

But San Diego's Geezer Bandit (shown below) has caught the fancy of the media and the public after 11 bank robberies in the last year.

Tellers who have had contact with the robber say he is between 60 and 70 years old and that he's all business when he flashes a gun and demands money.

Fans have set up a website and may hawk gear inspired by the apparently older man robbing San Diego banks. But public fascination with bank robbers is nothing new.

The authorities are not amused.
