Seek Bootleg Gang in $427,000 Brooklyn Armored Car Holdup Belief that the machine gun robbers who looted an armored truck of $427,000 on a Brooklyn street and made a clean getaway are former bootleggers of the old Brooklyn sea-going gangs has been expressed by police. These photos show, left, a view of Bay Nineteenth Nineteenth street after the daring holdup, with the robbed truck in back- ground, and the dingy pushcart, in foreground, where the bandits left a machine gun; right, John Allen (with hand on hip), driver of the armored car, and Bill Lillienthal (facing camera), one of the guards, being questioned by police, who have launched a widespread search for the gunmen.
