Roy Gardner was long on guts and short on memory. He took $187,000 during a May 1921 robbery of a train just outside Sacramento. The next morning, he held up a mail train not far from there. But a clerk on the latter express identified him and Gardner was arrested. He offered to lead officers to the loot in exchange for a lighter sentence, but the whole thing turned out to be a wild good chase. Gardner then said, “I guess I have forgotten where I buried the money.” He was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
