Six armed men held up the Bank of Mars Hill [NC] in September 1935. The robbery was discovered by two local girls. Their warning was relayed to the telephone switchboard operator who sounded the town fire alarm. The startled robbers fled the bank with $2,000 and sprayed the town with gun fire as they drove away. Later 100 bullets holes were found in buildings on Main Street.
