1920’s Grass Lake Bank Robbery Still Has Thousands of Dollars Waiting to be Found
Could there be some hidden buried cash in the Grass Lake area?
Some locals think so.
Around 11:00 in the morning on July 29, 1920, the Farmer's State Bank - now Comerica Bank - in Grass Lake was held up with the robbers getting away with almost $70,000 in cash, gold and bonds.
The robbers --- six of 'em --- had been staying at the Mack Island hotel at Wolf Lake pretending to be fishermen...in fact, when they robbed the bank, they stuffed the loot in tackle boxes...they even bound bank employees with fishing line!
Thanks to the small town atmosphere --- where everyone knows everybody and what everyone else is doing --- it was only a matter of time for the locals to tell the sheriff about the out-of-town strangers that were staying at the Mack Island hotel.
It's believed that the remaining stolen loot may be even sunk deep into the nearby swamp.
Grab that metal detector, a shovel, a small boat, and head out to Wolf Lake.....
you NEVER know.....
