    Walter Lamar and Stephen Chenoweth – Sleepover Bank Robbers, Part 2

    Walter Lamar and Stephen Chenoweth – Sleepover Bank Robbers, Part 2

    In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, retired agents Walter Lamar and Stephen Chenoweth review how a new emergency wiretap authorization for pay phones aided in the nationwide manhunt and capture of FBI Top Ten Most Wanted fugitives Terry Lee Conner and Joseph William Dougherty. Conner and Dougherty met in prison and in the 1980s began working together in one of the most professional bank robbery operations in U.S. history. They would identify the bank manager and where he lived, hold him hostage the night before, and forcibly escort him to the bank where they would empty the vault. Known as the sleepover bandits, their well-planned and methodical robberies netted them more than $1 million. After their daring escape from custody, Conner and Dougherty earned a place on the FBI and the U.S. Marshals' top wanted fugitives lists.
