Fun Facts
On November 20, 1933, four masked men entered the American Trades Bank on the corner of 5th and Main Streets. One of the four was John Dillinger. During the robbery, they took a Model 1928 Thompson submachine gun from a police officer. The gun, with John Dillinger’s signature on the stock, was recovered later when gang members were captured in Tucson, Arizona. It is on display in the police department lobby at 730 Center Street in Racine.

Yep! Those masked men enter a bank and hilarity ensues! Tune in for more “fun facts”
