2-Armed Robbers Escape with Cash
July 3, 1953

Two armed robbers held up Ed Hale, bartender at Buck’s Tavern, Doyle, Calif., at about 12:30a.m., Thursday and escaped with $350 in cash, the sheriff’s office reported.

Road blocks were immediately thrown up at Reno and Portola but at the latest reports, the robbers were not apprehended.

Hale said that the two men, after obtaining the $350, asked that he turn over two guns which were in a box near the cash register.

After leaving the tavern the two got into a car in which a driver had been waiting, and started south on Highway 395.
