Dillinger Gun Returning To Auburn

A .45 cal­iber Thomp­son sub-machine gun that was stolen from the Auburn Police Depart­ment by John Dillinger and his gang back in 1933 is being returned to the depart­ment today by a spe­cial agent of the FBI.

The gun was recov­ered from Dillinger and his gang by police in Tus­con, Ari­zona shortly after being stolen in Auburn. The gun was then trans­ferred to the FBI where it remained for over 45 years.

Auburn Police have plans to dis­play the weapon so res­i­dents and vis­i­tors can view it.
