Fullerton Patrolman Ernest E. Garner with bank robbers, Fullerton, 1927

Bank robbers W. Benjamin Morrison (left) and George Horine (right) of San Jose were captured when the car they were driving overturned at Spadra Rd. and Whiting Ave. The two 19-year-olds had robbed a bank in Saratoga, California the week before.

 

"Don't tell my mother," said Morrison. "She had carbon monoxide poisoning a couple of years ago and lost her memory. If she finds out about this it will give her a setback."
