I got Catch Points.  Catch points and trap points are types of turnout which act as railway safety devices. Both work by guiding railway carriages and trucks from a dangerous route onto a separate, safer track.

Leslie Ibsen Rogge (born March 8, 1940 in SeattleWashington [1]) was imprisoned at the United States Penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansasin the 1970s for car theft and grand larceny. [2] He was later convicted and sentenced to 25 years for a 1984 bank robbery in Key Largo, Florida.

Following his escape, he went on to commit additional bank robberies, including one at an Exchange Bank branch in El Dorado, Arkansas and at a bank in High Point, North Carolina in 1986.[3] On January 24, 1990, Rogge became the 430th Fugitive to be added to the FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, where he remained for the next six years.[2][4][5] He was featured on the television program, Unsolved Mysteries and on America's Most Wanted five times.[2] In 1991, he also robbed a bank in Webb City, Missouri.[3]

On May 19, 1996, Rogge surrendered at the United States Embassy in Guatemala, after Guatemalan authorities had launched a manhunt upon being tipped off by someone who saw Rogge's photo on the FBI website.[6] While on the run, he also spent time in Antigua where he went by the name Bill Young.[2]

Rogge stole over $2 million and robbed approximately 30 banks in all, and is currently serving a 65-year sentence at USP Beaumont, Texas. He is due to be released in 2047. He is credited as being the first FBI Top Ten criminal to be apprehended due to the internet.[7]
