Bandits Sourht
By State Poice
In Bank Theft
Highway Blockade Flung
Across Lower Michigan
To Catch Five Men
Ohio Police Assist
Search Concentrated Near
Lake Erie Shore Area;
Consider Boat Escape
DETROIT, May 1. --(/P) -Michi-
gan State Police, in their first wide-
spread bandit hunt in two years,
flung a line of highway blockades
across southeast Michigan tonight in
an effort to intercept five men who
seized $50,000 in a noon-hour holdup
of a Detroit branch bank.
The search, joined by Ohio State
police from Toledo, concentrated in
the Lake Erie shore section of Stony
Point, where a beer truck driver told
Monroe County officers he saw a large
sedan turn from the Dixie Highway
into a dead-end road which led to the
lake shore.
Police Order Search
The State Police, reinforced by
county officers and railroad special
agents, beat the area thoroughly and
then ordered a detailed search of all
cottages, garages and boat houses.
They considered the possibility the
men might have used a boat in their
escape, but could not find a trace of
an abandoned car.
The robbers, leaving one man at
the wheel of the large sedan, worked
without a moment's hesitation after
they strolled leisurely into the bank,
a branch of the Detroit Savings Bank,
oldest Detroit institution.
The leader, carrying an automatic
rifle, crisply ordered "everybody lie
down," and then stood guard while
two of his confederates scaled a high
partition which separated the tellers'
cages from the lobby.
The fourth man stood guard at a
window overlooking the street.
Two Injured
After scooping the cash into a white
cloth sack, the leader fired one shot.
It ricocheted off a marble counter,
and splinters of the stone injured
Mrs. Inva Hershey and Henry Taylor,
customers. Mrs. Hershey was taken
to a hospital for treatment of a hand
Employes said the robbers took only
four minutes to complete the robbery
and leave the building. Patrolman
Ray Stevens, on the beat, said he was
in the bank five minutes before the
robbery to cash his pay check and
had gone only a block when he heard.
the burglar alarm sound.
Bank officials said the large
amount of cash had been placed in
the cages to handle a noon-day rush
from industrial plants where em-
ployes were paid today. The men
overlooked a larger sum in the vault.
Herold I. Reinecke, Division of In-
vestigation of the Department of Jus-
tice, said his men were joining in the
seaich, but after an examination of
descriptions given by witnesses, said
he did not agree with the belief of
Chief of Detectives Henry Piel that
the men might have been led by Al-
