    Introducing Norco 80 Episode 1: The Robbery

    Introducing Norco 80 Episode 1: The Robbery

    Introducing Norco 80, the unbelievable true story about God, guns, survivalism and the bank robbery that changed policing in America forever.

    May 9th, 1980 began as a regular Friday in sleepy Norco, a small town about 48 miles east of Los Angeles, known mostly for its horse trails and old western look. But around 3:30pm, five masked men with assault rifles would attempt to rob the Security Pacific Bank downtown.

    Host Antonia Cereijido introduces us to a region that was rapidly becoming the “Bank Robbery Capital of the World'' in the 1980s. The robbers themselves describe the beginning hours of the ill-fated robbery, that forty years later is still used to justify the evolution of armed policing and crime response in America.

    Norco ‘80 is produced by LAist Studios in collaboration with Futuro Studios.

Great show for the morning or day

The stories and reporting on the show are great. If you live in the Los Angeles area or in California in general, this is good for your daily news and topics. I get to work at 9:30 and this podcast/ show allows me to catch up when I drive home. They post the show a little after noon and are now very consistent. A. Martinez knows his dodgers talk and lake show news and every Friday they’ll let you know what’s going on in L.A. for the weekend.
