911 Call: Show Me the Money

INTRODUCTION
Vista, Calif., November 22, 2000


Three masked gunmen take bank manager Michelle Renee, her seven year-old daughter Breea, and their roommate Kimbra, hostage, strap dynamite to their backs, and force Michelle to hand over $360,000 from her bank. Once the hostages are released, Kimbra speaks to a 911 operator, hoping police can capture the robbers.



CONCLUSION
Michelle Renee is able to identify one of the gunmen as Christopher Butler, the man who had visited her bank and left a business card the very day of the kidnapping. Police soon arrest Christopher Butler and his co-conspirators who confess to the crime. Butler and two other men are currently serving three consecutive life sentences in the California prison system.
