Giofre said he and Cagnola were patrolling Collinsville in a heavy fog early Sunday morning. Four men in another car hailed them to ask directions to a "hydroelectric plant" Giofre said. He told them there wasn't any In the Collinsville area. Then, apparently afraid the policemen had recognized them, the men pulled guns, two of them disarmed the policemen and climbed into the police car, telling Giofre to drive to a highway. The other two forced Cagnola farm, Burnettsville, placed first in milk production during the November .testing period, according to the official report from the Cass county Dairy Herd Improvement Association.

' Bil1 Davidson 45.8 The state police car continued .on its way, and the two cars turned into a side road near a sewage plant where the gunmen handcuffed tree. "If we kill the policemen to a them they won't Identify us," Giofre quoted Johnson. A scuffle between the criminals broke out, and Johnson warned the others "Get out of my way, or I'll kill you, too." _Johnson pumped a shell into a riot gun taken from the patrol car and aimed it at the two policemen. But one of the gunmen spoke nervously in Italian to Giofre and then talked to Johnson trying to persuade him not to shoot. Johnson, a 6-footer about 30 years old, lowered the riot gun. Giofre said later "I owe my life to that Italian fellow." Set up Roadblocks Giofre said the men, armed with their own weapons plus the guns taken from the patrol car, fled in a 1955 or 195S hardtop convertible with Michigan license plates. They headed toward St. Louis, just a few miles west of here. Giofre managed to reach handcuff keys in his pocket, removed the handcuf/s and ran to the police car which had been left 100'feet from the tree. A radioed alarm established roadblocks in the area without success. Neith-.T officer could explain why the men wanted to find hydro-electric plant. They speculated, however, the men might have buried something, possibly robbery loot, and had used the plant as a marker. There have been no major robberies in the Collinsville area recently. They could offer no good description of the men because of I the poor visibility.
