Young Bandits get $6,000 in Raid on Bank on Woodbury
Quartet, Armed with Sawed-off Shotguns, Stage Daring Holdup
Herd Trio unto Vault

Using sawed-off shotguns, four young bandits heldup the Commerce Union Bank at Woodbury at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday morning and escaped with around $6,000 in cash.

The quartet enter the bank saying "stick 'em up quick". One of the men went behind the cage and locked the three employees, S.B. Hawkins, Morton McMurray, and Charles Hawkins in the vault with the lattice door while the other men held guns on them.

The three escaped in time to see a sedan car with Georgia license plate speed toward Manchester.

A small amount of money in a box at the window was overlooked by the robbers.

The bank is fully covered by burglar insurance and the depositors will suffer no loss whatsoever.
