Yeah, I enjoyed reading about his history as much as researching where the tag was located.

Little more info on Bill Miner and Canada

Since he was cought near Douglas Lake where I grew up in Canada thought I would share some more info..

After his third prison term, Miner moved to the province of British Columbia in Canada, and is believed to have staged British Columbia's first-ever train robbery about 35km east of Vancouver....Miner was eventually caught after an aborted payroll train robbery near Kamloops. He and his two accomplices, Shorty Dunn and Louis Colquhoun, were located near Douglas Lake, B.C. after an extensive manhunt. When found, Miner apparently surrendered to the arresting officers with his customary courteousness.......After serving time in the B.C. Penitentiary Miner escaped and was never recaptured in Canada. It is presumed that he moved back to the US, becoming once again involved in robberies in the South. There, he served more prison time, and escaped again.


and I have to show some pics of where he was captured in Canada..My childhood roaming grounds







now that is Gods land...

Bill Miner was an interesting man. Quite strange that he would end up in Milledgeville.
