KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Authorities say the "Grandpa Bandit" has struck again at the same Knoxville credit union he was accused of robbing last week.

The FBI says Bobby Joe Phillips, described as a 69-year-old resident of Covington, Ga., robbed the Tennessee Members 1st Federal Credit Union at 11:16 a.m. Eastern.

Phillips is also suspected in six other bank robberies since September in Georgia and Tennessee, including the same credit union last Thursday.

This news is stale. The robber was caught yesterday in Perry, Georgia.

Unhappy Poor Grandpa. At least now he'll have plenty to eat.

I was just wondering what is going on here with old Grandpa, SmokyMtnGal.

I saw last night on the Atlanta news at 11PM that they found poor old Grandpa and he will have to spend Thanksgiving in the pokey!! At least he will have a hot meal and a place to sleep now. How desparate must a 69 year old man be to rob several banks? Doesn't say much for Social Security, does it?

Let this be a lesson for all of you kids: Do not rob the same bank twice no matter what your age.
