Foiled by a Lockheed Badge!
The 1945 Burbank Bank Robbery
by Wes Clark and Mike McDaniel
Ace Burbank researcher Mike McDaniel came across the following photo, which led to my doing some investigation with the Los Angeles Times.
John Uckele's sentence was cut from 35 to 20 years in recognition of the fact that he cooperated with Federal authorities to recover some of the money. The media trail ends here, but the question remains: is there $100,000 buried somewhere?
Perhaps in Burbank?
