Summary

Bank Robbery traces the history of the crime from the early days of American history to the present. After Frank and Jesse James pioneered the daylight holdup in 1866, crime has never been the same. Although banks and police have made it increasingly difficult to successfully rob a bank, criminals still try, drawn by the lure of money. The tactics criminals have used to rob banks and the laws and procedures police use to put bank robbers behind bars are described in this interesting title.

Chapters include:

  • Manhunters
  • Gangbusters
  • Public Enemy No. 1
  • Most Wanted
  • Prevention and Investigation.
Cases covered include:
  • Frank and Jesse James
  • Fighting bank robbers on the American frontier
  • The depression era bandits and the golden age of “public enemies”
  • John Dillinger
  • Willie Sutton
  • The FBI’s Ten Most Wanted
  • How police combat modern criminals and violent tactics
  • Modern methods of preventing and investigating bank robberies.
