When police answered a call recently in Accokeek, Md., they
found two robbers lying face down next to their wrecked getaway car
and a band of armed citizens standing guard. The two men had been
seen by a telephone company employee to enter the local bank and
pull a gun. The employee raced to a nearby hardware store to call
police and, while doing so, the store's proprietor, Robert W.
Perrygo, armed himself with a pistol and shotgun and started for the
bank. Meanwhile, another telephone company worker, Richard Knowles,
parked his truck in an alleyway in such a way to block the bandits'
escape. When the thieves got into the escape car Knowles fired a
shotgun blast through the rear window. The car smashed into the
parked truck, and Perrygo and other citizens who had armed
themselves converged on the pair. The bank loot, about $10,000, had
been stuffed into a bag and thrown into a barrel during the melee
but was later recoverd by police.
