Bank Robberyby Rosemary Ellen Guiley
Frank and Jesse James pioneered the daylight holdup in 1866. Ever since then, bank officials and law-enforcement authorities have battled bank robbers. Modern security, technology, and police methods have made it extremely difficult for criminals to successfully rob a bank; yet, drawn by the lure of fast money, many still try. Bank Robbery traces the history of the crime from the time of Frank and Jesse James to the present, detailing the tactics criminals have used to rob banks and the laws and crimefighting techniques police have used to put bank robbers behind bars.
