Indiana state police surround the house where two of the convicts were supposed to have been from the
Michigan City prison break, circa Oct. 1933. On Sept. 26, 1933, ten convicts, lead by John 'Red' Hamilton,
broke out of the Indiana State Prison in Michigan City, Indiana, using guns smuggled to them by John
Dillinger. In the coming days after the prison break, the Chicago Tribune reported over "500 vigilantes,
police and deputy sherriffs" searched the farming districts near Michigan City for the felons. Dillinger,
who was in a jail cell in Lima, Ohio, engineered the escape of the ten convicts, who became known as
Dillinger's gang. Less than a month after they escaped from Michigan City, several of Dillinger's gang
broke him out of the jail in Lima, Ohio.
