In 1970 two men robbed a Danbury bank and blew up the police station

The story of the Pardue brothers, their connection to Danbury and what happened in Hat City in February 1970 came to us from Mike Allen. Every Tuesday Mike joins the Ethan and Lou Show on I-95 for a feature film called “The Place You Live” and this week it was a local story like I had never heard.

John Pardue was a 27 year old male in 1970 who lived in Danbury, his brother James was 23 and lived in Lusby, Maryland. Before the story reached Hat City and the brothers robbed the Union Savings Bank on Main Street, they had already racked up a whole list of amazing crimes.

Prior to Danbury, they robbed banks in Lewisboro, NY, Georgetown, CT and Union, MO. They also killed their father, grandmother, two other men who helped them commit the robbery in Georgetown, Connecticut and had, at a minimum, a role in the death of an innocent man from Bridgeport to whom they stole a car. John and James Pardue were hard-core criminals before their Danbury bank robbery.
