It was quite the event. The newspaper articles are interesting, and they were framed and placed in the pub.
Brockville has recorded its history.
Let me sum it up.
No guns, no hold-up; they used picks and drills in the dead of the night. The walls were two feet thick, and they broke through the ceiling, and into the steel wall of the vault. Then, using Acetylene torches, and prying open the safety deposit boxes where they stole bonds, cash, and jewellery. They left behind their equipment! With time to wash up, they left behind a wristwatch, a raincoat and a woman's scarf. One robber dropped a receipt.
They arrested Rene Martin, in Montreal 28 hours later. He said there were five people involved in the heist, but he wouldn't name them. Apparently, even up to 1981 the bearer bonds were being sold around the world: Switzerland, Central and South America, and in New York, Miami and Toronto.
