“Shorty” Anderson was clean cut and good looking. At five-three, he was of stout build, looking strong like a wrestler, with an easy smile. Dressed in his better cloths he could pass as a banker or a church deacon- But he was mean as hell.
He had a real job in Dallas. Gulf States Oil Company hired him as a mechanic to service and maintain their gas pumps, air compressors, water hydrants and hoses, cash registers, door latches and anything else that broke at their service stations all over Dallas. That was his regular job.
His irregular job was burglary, robbery, and safe cracking.
