Police honor ex-officer for bravery

By Kim Bell
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS — Former city police Officer Melburn F. Stein has a roomful of memorabilia and a vivid memory about his role 55 years ago in foiling the famed Southwest Bank heist.

The lanky ex-Marine, now 94, was promoted hastily to corporal for what he did. He received letters of thanks that year from the circuit attorney and mayor. The hostage he saved lauded him for dropping the head bandit with "a perfect shot."
