The Bradshaw Stage Office Robbery
In the late 1880s a band of four or five outlaws held up the Bradshaw route stage office in Beaumont, then known as San Goronio, and made off with $20,000 in gold coins. Heading west across the Moreno Badlands, they holed up in a mesquite grove on the outskirts of the little town of Moreno. On the following morning they were surprised by a posse and all were killed. No gold coins were found on their bodies or in the area searched, so it was presumed that the treasure was buried or hidden some distance away from where they made camp and were killed.
