On October 5, 1892, the famous Dalton Gang attempted the daring daylight robbery of two Coffeyville,
Kansas, banks at the same time.

But if the gang members believed the sheer audacity of their plan
would bring them success, they were sadly mistaken. Instead, they
were nearly all killed by quick-acting townspeople.

For a year and a half, the Dalton Gang had terrorized the state of Oklahoma, mostly concentrating on train holdups. Though the
gang had more murders than loot to their credit, they had managed
to successfully evade the best efforts of Oklahoma law officers to
bring them to justice.

Image result for historic brinks robbery in 1950

On January 17, 1950, 11 men steal more than $2 million ($29 million today) 
from the Brink’s Armored Car depot in Boston,
Massachusetts. It was the
perfect crime—almost—as the culprits weren’t caught until January 1956,
just days before the statute of limitations for the theft expired.

The robbery’s mastermind was Anthony “Fats” Pino, a career criminal who recruited a group of 10 other men to stake out the depot for 18 months to
figure out when it held the most money. Pino’s men then managed to steal
plans for the depot’s alarm system, returning them before anyone noticed
they were gone.

Image result for reno brothers first train robbery

The Reno brothers, John and Simeon, staged the first train robbery in
American history, making off with $13,000 from an
Ohio and Mississippi
railroad train in Jackson County,

Of course, trains had been robbed before the Reno brothers’ holdup. But
these previous crimes had all been burglaries of stationary trains sitting
in depots or freight yards. The Reno brothers’ contribution to criminal
history was to stop a moving train in a sparsely populated region where
they could carry out their crime without risking interference from the law
or curious bystanders.
