The gang was eventually caught, but escaped before the end of the 70's. After escaping, all three moved to the and regrouped, beginning an incredible string of more than 50 bank robberies. Their MO gave the group their unique name - one member carried a stopwatch and would time their hold-ups based on the interesting supposition that if they weren't out of a bank in 90 seconds their chances of getting apprehended were mathematically higher.
