After a foolish robbery as a youth, Dillinger was arrested and given a harsh sentence for the crime. While incarcerated in the Indiana State Prison, Dillinger learned the skill of bank robbery.

The path went though the heart of Delaware County, Indiana with the robberies of the Bide-A-Wee Inn, and the Commercial Bank of Daleville.
