Caption: Officers and a detective take bank robber William Scholl to a vehicle. Scholl, 26, was the only one of the four with a clean record. A disabled Army veteran from World Ward II and a bartender in Chicago, he had met Bowerman in the tavern and became part of the gang on Bowerman's promise that he'd "make $5,000 in five minutes." Scholl suffered a wound to his back in a gunfight with officers, and he surrendered inside the bank. A third robber, Frank B. Vito, 25, shot himself rather than be sent back to prison. The fourth, getaway driver Glenn Chernick, drove off when the first police arrived, and was captured in Chicago three days later. Scholl, Vito and Chernick were from Chicago and Bowerman was from Niles, Mich., but often plied his trade in Chicago. (Jack January/Post-Dispatch)
