I am looking for newspaper or court records of the Bank Robbery by my mothers father, my grandfather, Myles/Milett Arthur BRUCE about June 1926. He was caught and sent to prison for 10 years. I don't know exactly where the robbery was or sentencing. But he was sent to Sioux Falls, SD State Penitentiary Oct 21, 1927 from Hanson County on a charge of 1st degree robbery.
Any help in finding where these records would be, would help. I've written to Sioux Falls Penit. but they only tell me when he came there and what for, and the date (above), his appearance, religion, that he was divorced and his occ.
Thanks, Carole (Guthrie)BonnellCarolebonnell@aol.com
