Gallery: The Hibernia Bank Robbery
With guns in hand, Patricia Hearst and four members of the Symbionese Liberation Army were caught on camera robbing a branch of the Hibernia Bank in San Francisco. On that day in April 1974, the outlaw group got away with over $10,000.
Later, Hearst's lawyer would use the security camera images to argue that Patty was forced at gunpoint to participate in the crime. But Hearst's recorded statements, along with the puzzling fact that she had not escaped when she had the opportunity, made some think she had thrown in her lot with the revolutionaries.
Witness the hold up first-hand in these security camera photographs, and make your own decision about what really happened.
