"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 hold-up 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.The chapters include: Manhunters; Gangbusters; Public Enemy No. 1; Most Wanted; and, Prevention and Investigation.
