John and his gang robbed police stations without fear. While most criminals would agree that police stations are probably the last place you’d ever want to hit, The Dillinger gang felt that their need to weaponry was top priority. So, just days after having been broken out of jail, John and his gang robbed two police stations in Auburn and Peru, Indiana. They stole everything from Tommy Guns, rifles, tear gas, bullet-proof vests, and pistols. Everything they stole was to be used solely for robbing banks.
