Alarmed by the sound of a car stopping suddenly outside his
Arundel, Quebec, branch bank, manager Charles Curtis Farran looked
from his office window to see armed, hooded men piling from a pickup
truck outside. Farran ran up the back stairs to his apartment over
the bank as the robbers fired at him. As Farran was loading his
shotgun the bandits had lined up customers and tellers downstairs
and demanded the safe be opened. Told that only the manager had the
combination, they scooped the cash from the tellers' drawers and
fled--but Farran was waiting. As the thieves climbed into their
truck, he fired three shots. The truck then sped away. Shortly
after, police found the stolen truck abandoned, with a dead hoodlum
inside police identified as having been killed by Farran.
