Description
Police consider the possibilities of radio as an ultra-modern weapon in combatting crime, as a result of a quick capture by radio of two alleged bandits in Pasadena. Photo shows how a gunman held up four employees in a chain grocery store. The victims are, left to right: B.A. Blum; Percy Greene; A. Failing and Fred Schwoerer. As the gunman and a henchman turned to flee after obtaining $50, Schwoerer slipped to a phone and notified police, giving a description of the bandits' auto. Photo dated: November 18, 1930.
