The Monett Times December 23, 1921

SUSPECTED BANK ROBBER ARRESTED

Sheriff Roberts and W.H. Jones, cashier of the Bank of Washburn, arrest Sunday at Rogers a young man who gives his name as Elmer Brown and brought him to Cassville Sunday night where he was landed in jail. Brown is believed to be one of the men who robbed the Bank of Washburn Oct. 17.
Brown was apprehended upon suspicion once at Monett soon after the robbery and was searched when it was reported that he had been seen with quite a roll of money on his person. However, before he was searched he had in some way disposed of the money.
A week or two after the robbery of the Washburn bank Sheriff Roberts looked for Brown at Bartlesville, Okla., but he gave the officer the dodge. When arrested Sunday he told the sheriff that he had been expected to be arrested most any day. Brown will be held for preliminary.
There were 3 men who took part in robbing the Bank of Washburn on Oct. 17, when about $1,700 were stolen. It is now believed the young man killed last week while attempting to rob a bank at Tar River, Okla., was one of the men who took part in the Washburn robbery.

St. Louis Republic Oct. 27, 1905

FLEEING HORSE THIEF TARGET FOR CONSTABLE

Following a furious drive of a half mile from the Wellston Hotel late last night, some unidentified man was compelled to abandon a horse and buggy which he had stolen from the Wellston Hotel and take to the woods to escape bullets fired at him by Constable Berger, who had hurried across country and intercepted the horse thief. It is not believed that the shots took effect, however.
The stolen horse and buggy belonged to Albert Martin of the Cella Commision Company, and the discovery of the theft was made soon after the unidentified man drove away. Constable Berger of St. Louis County and Special Officer Joe Rice of the St. Louis force, started in pursuit, and the horse and buggy were recovered.

AS JESSE JAMES DID

Missouri Bandits From The Ozark Region Rob Train In France

Paris, Mar. 3.--- Two men, who say they are from the Ozark Mountains in Missouri, and that their names are William and Silas White, have been engaging in train robbery in France after the most approved Jesse James methods.
After spending most of their money in Paris, they went to Bordeaux and there hatched their plans. On a dark night last week they stopped a train between Bordeaux and Biarritz by displaying warning signals. They then leaped into the sleeping car, and, at the points of their revolvers, robbed the 22 passengers, obtaining at least $1,000. They escaped and as they were masked, it was impossible to trace them.

Emboldened by this success, they made an attempt yesterday to rob the mails. At a railway station they sneaked into a mail express car unnoticed, and shortly after the train started, attacked the messenger and attempted to bind and gag him. He was a stout fellow and resisted stubbornly. The robbers finally, unable to master him, flung him from the flying car. They then started to rifle the money packages, but they had miscalculated the time and the train reached Escout before they had finished their work. They were both collared as they sprang from the car. The messenger, whose name is Serrante, was fatally injured.





It didn't say what they were doing in France. WWI was still a long way off. Maybe they were there to share our Missouri culture with the French people?
I wonder if they did any time on Devil's Island? Someone was killed.
I did a Google search on them and found a couple of brothers in Missouri named William and Silas White. If they are the ones they were older than I expected. But I guess you're never too old to rob trains.
This is what I found:

Springfield, Mo., Aug. 21---James Brown, a notorious desperado who lived most of the time in Taney county, was charged with robbing a farm house across the line in Arkansas in the vicinity of Lead Hill, and yesterday morning a party of men learning of his whereabouts, undertook to effect his arrest.
A man named Harris, who was some distance ahead of the others, saw Brown in the woods about six miles north of Forsythe and was immediately fired upon, the bullet hitting him in the abdomen and lodging in the back.
Harris returned the fire, but before the rest of the party could come up, Brown had disappeared in the woods. The ball was cut from the wounded man's body and at last accounts he was still conscious, but the physician thinks it is impossible for him to recover. Another party of men headed by James Burch, deputy marshal, and J.C. Sheridan was organized last night to hunt Brown down, and following his trail they found him in the woods about 4 miles from where Harris was shot yesterday.
Brown saw his pursuers and started to run, at the same time flourishing his pistol as if trying or threatening to shoot. The posse called to him 3 times to stop to which he paid no attention and James Burch leveled his revolver and fired, and when Burch and his companions reached the spot he was dead, the bullet having struck him in the center of the back.
There was also another wound on his left side, which was no doubt made by the shot fired from Harris' pistol yesterday.
Brown was about 40 years old and had the reputation of being a worthless scamp. While in the city more than a year ago, he robbed an old man from Christian county of $300, was arrested and lodged in jail and on the following night made his escape. The sheriff offered $50 reward for his recapture, but his whereabouts have been unknown until this evening when Deputy Marshal Sheridan came to claim the reward.

ANOTHER CHAPTER

Another chapter was added to the Tucker tragedy of DeKalb county when Robert W. Tucker was lodged in jail at Maysville, and his 12-year-old boy, Albert, was placed in Asylum No. 2, St. Joseph, a raving maniac. On March 30, Robert Tucker shot and killed his aged father, Ambrose Tucker, near Fairport, DeKalb county because of some business dispute. The unfortunate boy was an eyewitness to the killing of his grandfather, which is supposed to be the sole cause of his loss of reason.






In the 40 years that followed prohibition, 6,000 stills were seized in Arkansas and Missouri.
