On January 25, 1934, John Dillinger and his crew of criminals, Charley Makley, Russell Clark and triggerman Harry Pierpont, were apprehended by Tucson law enforcement following a string of bank robberies, murders and jailbreaks carried out from Kentucky to South Dakota. 

The gang came to Tucson to hide from the heat and get out of the cold, but soon found themselves behind bars. They were eventually transported east to face their fates. 

Hotel Congress, the same hotel that helped bring the Dillinger gang to justice (see fact No. 2), celebrates Dillinger's capture each year with Dillinger Days, set to take place this Friday and Saturday. 

On Friday, a speakeasy will be held at 7 p.m. with proceeds going to the Greater Tucson Fire Foundation. Saturday's family friendly activities  include a classic car show, dramatic reenactments and artifacts from the actual apprehension on display.
