Four Texas brothers break banks and trains, too
Breaking their night-owl habit of working strictly at night, a bandit band of brothers robbed the bank at New Braunfels in broad daylight on Mar. 9, 1922. If Willis Newton can be believed, and that is a big “if,” the Newton Boys were the most successful bank and train robbers of all-time stealing “more money than the Dalton Gang, Butch Cassidy’s Wild Bunch and the James-Younger Gang combined.” That was the total take from 87 banks and six trains in a five-year crime spree.
