1 robber caught, another robbery revealed

The man who robbed the bank that my grandfather and great-grandfather had owned has been arrested. I tried to tell you that robbing banks doesn’t pay. For $2,670, he now faces a minimum of 10 years in prison for Class A felony. (I don’t know what he’s been charged with, but that’s my best guess.)

Slightly related, while going through old newspaper articles, I discovered that my great-great-grandfather’s general store was robbed Jan. 19, 1910. (It’s the paragraph that starts with “Burglars.”)

The Marshall Republican didn’t offer many details; I hope to check the archives from other papers in the area soon.
