The 1931 Hastings Bank Job

BankJob large  By Monty McCord

In February 1931, "Mr. & Mrs. Robert Hendricks" and three others tied up fourteen employees at the Hastings National Bank and walked away with over $27,000 from the vault.  They then returned home to plan a robbery of the First National Bank for the following day.  Even though police quickly surrounded the house, the robbers managed to capture all eleven officers on the scene and make a getaway.  Retired police lieutenant and historian Monty McCord recounts the crime and the grisly aftermath in the first account of the heist ever to be published.
