In the video, a man walks into view that the FBI identifies as the Geezer Bandit.
After the dye pack explodes, a plume of smoke rises in front of him. Then, the Geezer Bandit falls to the ground and scrambles to pick up his belongings and money. He is then seen running away from the scene.
"When you look at the video and you see him sprint away from the bank parking lot, it would appear that the person who is running was running at a pretty good pace," said FBI special agent Darrell Foxworth. "[He] may be someone younger than someone who appears to be 60 or 70 years old."
The bandit may also be someone wearing a high-dollar mask made by a Hollywood special effects company. Companies like those are now on the radar of the FBI.
The Geezer Bandit's latest heist took place on Dec. 2 in San Luis Obispo. It was the 16th robbery in the notorious Geezer Bandit series, according to the FBI. He has robbed 11 banks in San Diego County since his first one in Santee, which took place back in August 2009.
The last time the Geezer Bandit struck in San Diego County was on Sept. 30 with a robbery at a Wells Fargo Bank in La Jolla.
Though the Geezer Bandit's crimes are becoming well-known, Foxworth said the bandit should be considered armed and dangerous.
A $20,000 reward for information leading to his arrest and conviction is still being offered.
