The Untouchables Season 1 Episode 9
In the latter part of 1933, there was an epidemic of truck hijackings in the states of Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania; this was the work of 6 gangsters: the Tri-State Gang. Tonight, in Richmond, Virginia, they’re hijacking a truckload of radios. As usual “Big” Bill Phillips, a 6’4″ ox of a man, takes over the hijacked truck, transferring the load onto their truck; Artie McLeod, a cheap tinhorn gambler, puts a burlap sack over the driver’s head, blinding him, and chains the driver to a tree.
