The first recorded bank robbery in the USA. ๐Ÿฆ

The earliest recorded bank robbery ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ in the United States took place in 1798 in Philadelphia, in the Bank of Pennsylvania at Carpenterโ€™s Hall.

Patrick Lyon, a young blacksmith was contracted by a man named Samuel Robinson to make locks for the bankโ€™s new location.
With him was Isaac Davis, who turned out to be one of Robinsonโ€™s conspirators.

After completing the work, Lyon and his apprentice fled the city to escape the Yellow Fever epidemic ๐Ÿ˜ท , whilst Robinson went on to rob the bank and got away with $162,821๐Ÿ’ฐ.

When the blacksmith, Lyon, learned that he was a suspect in the robbery, he returned to Philadelphia to clear his name, but was arrested & jailed๐Ÿ‘จโ€โš–๏ธ.

After spending three months in jail, his name was finally cleared when Davis deposited his stolen money ๐Ÿ’ต ๐Ÿ’ต in the same bank he had robbed. Exactly $162,821.

When questioned by police ๐Ÿ‘ฎ about his newfound wealth ๐Ÿ’ต , he caved and confessed to the robbery. ๐Ÿ“ฃ

The blacksmith, Lyon was eventually released from prison and wrote a book ๐Ÿ“–.ย  Believe it or not, this was the title of the book….โ€The Narrative of Patrick Lyon: who Suffered Three Months Severe Imprisonment on Merely a Vague Suspicion of Being Concerned in the Robbery of the Bank of Pennsylvania, with his Remarks Thereonโ€.
