    The author reviews some of the literature on robbers and their offenses, and presents an original study of all 13 robbers referred to a maximum security hospital for pretrial psychiatric evaluation during 1 year. When compared with non-substance-abusers, accused robbers who abused alcohol or drugs tended to be younger, use weapons more often, and commit more robberies as an afterthought to other violent offenses against private citizens. Methods similar to the one used here might be helpful in understanding the relationships between other offenses and diagnoses.
