HUNCH PAYS OFF FOR ZANESVILLE FARMER out/i Captures Holdup Suspect ZANESVILLE (AP) — Nineteen-year-old James Priest was worried about his family, with three bank robbers on the loose. The farm youth loaded a shotgun for his molher, then mentally placed himself in the fugitives' position. Where would he hide if the police were after him? * * * THEN HE THOUGH of a perfect hiding place on his farm: A heavily wooded area with a cave two miles north of where the robbery took place. Armed with a shotgun, he went to search the area — and caught one of the robber suspects. The capture was mostly "hunch" for the 6 - foot - 2 - inch youth, who works in Newark but lives on the farm with his mother and seven brothers and sisters. The hunch paid off, and Priest's capture Thursday netted Gerald Scott Browning, 29, of Zanesville, one of three men sought in the $6,602 robbery Wednesday of the Frazeysburg branch of First National bank of Zanesville. Shortly after Browning's capture, a second suspect, John Mayo, 40, a transient who formerly lived in New Orleans, was apprehended in a haystack on a nearby farm. Both men waived preliminary of i widespread manhunt. The FBI described Flott, a felon with a long criminal record, as armed and extremely dangerous. The getaway was a comedy of errors and bad luck. After robbing the bank, the fugitives' getaway car wouldn't start. Two fled on fool, and Ihe third — Floot, the FBI thinks --- escaped in a stolen car. The car was found 'abandoned later about two miles from Zanesville. Authorities said that Browning had only a few hundred dollars on him when arrested. About $4,000 of the stolen loot was found in a field a few hours after the holdup. EDMUND E. Nine...
