A local filmmaker, Mark Brown, has been working on a documentary about John Whitrock, aka The Fishing Hat Bandit. He robbed 23 credit unions and banks in 18 months prior to being arrested in 2005. Brown is seeking donations to finish the film.
"The film gives equal weight to the stories of the bank tellers who were traumatized over the course of Whitrock's crimes," said Mark Brown, Director and Producer. "There is a restorative justice aspect to the film that finds some redemption and resolution after all these years, which I hope is the most meaningful aspect of this project, " Brown said.
