The front page has two column headlines: "Gang Loot Chicago Bank of $50,000, Using Radio to Listen for Alarms", "Smash 96 Safety Deposit Boxes in Vault of Closed Institution After Binding Watchman and Four Customers--Leader Reads the List of Compartments to Be Opened". Though not mentioned because of the unknown at the time, this was in fact the work of John Dillinger. Rare to find reporting on his earlier bank robberies prior to 1934 when he became nationally known.
