Then the night watchman, George Leppich, shouted back: “You stick ’em up, too” and reached into his back pocket.
The gang dropped the clothing and fled. Leppich called police, but Barrow and his gang had escaped.
Barrow and two other men robbed a Middletown-area business the following day, and they were captured and extradited back to Texas, where Barrow was sentenced to 14 years. He was paroled two years later.
