Full titleThe Railroad Bank at Roseville was held up on January 18, 1926, by four men who took out $45,000 of the funds and proceeded along the highway with their loot. Detective Sergeants E.L. Roberts and Walter Nelson, of Sacramento, overtook them on the road and, after a gun battle, one of the desperados was killed and the other three taken into custody and are now doing five years to life in the Folsom Prison. The dead bandit, known only as "Whitey," was said to have been identified as Hugh Whitney, a notorious bandit who once terrorized the Wyoming-Utah-Montana borders some years ago. These photographs of the bandits are: J. Rechisin, alias Ray Parker, Folsom Prison No. 13971; John Ryan, Folsom Prison No. 13972; Thomas Newman, alias Joe Ross, Folsom Prison No. 13973.
