When a pair of youthful armed robbers hit a convenience
store in tiny Carlotta, Calif., the residents formed a posse and
gave chase. They called ahead to another nearby town, Swain's Flat,
and asked for help. The Swain's Flat citizens called another town,
Bridgeville, and alerted Loretta Scott and Gloria Falor. Scott and
Falor raised a posse which waited at their end of Bridgeville
Bridge. When the robbers' getaway car was halfway across the span,
the Bridgeville citizens blocked their end with cars and trucks.
Meanwhile, the pursuing Carlotta contingent blocked the other end.
Several citizens armed themselves, but no gunfire was needed.
Sheriff's deputies appeared and arrested the stranded criminals.
