Actors play out fake robbery in a Valley bank

The Clovis Big Dry Creek Historical Society presented the 1924 First State Bank Robbery melodrama.

Local amateur actors portrayed one the most famous events in Clovis history when "the owl" and "the lone wolf" robbed a bank there. The pair later got caught and punished.

The bank is now a museum and has been hosting reenactments of the robbery since 2004.

Saturday's event was free to the public, and a number of students from Cedar Wood Elementary School were there to watch.

Organizers say it's important for people to remember the history of Clovis and that bad guys get what they deserve.
