APPEARS IN Gun Laws

Sun-Gazette, Williamsport, PA

Friday, November 1, 1968

Armed with an empty shotgun, a Pennsylvania housewife drove five escapees from the Northumberland County Prison into the hands of police. The five had turned up at the Eugene Troxell home in rural Sunbury, Pa., and asked for water. When Troxell complied, two of them threatened him with knives and demanded his car keys. Ostensibly going for the keys, Mrs. Troxell came back with a shotgun and bluffed the men into releasing her husband. The fugitives were picked up later near the Troxell home.
