The Cops are Robbers (1990)

The Cops are Robbers (also known as Good Cops, Bad Cops) was a 1990 made-for-television movie depicting the true story of six bank robbers and their lucrative burglary of the Depositors' Trust Bank in Medford, Massachusetts over Memorial Day weekend in 1980, yielding the bandits $1.5 million in cash and over $18 million in gold and jewelry. The twist to the story is that three of the bank robbers were policemen in the Medford Police Department. Ray Sharkey plays Capt. Gerald W. "Gerry" Clemente, the head of the gang, and Ed Asner plays Jake Quinn, the Superintendent of the Medford Police who is out to nab Clemente's gang for the robbery.

The following weapons were used in the film The Cops are Robbers:

Smith & Wesson Model 36

Gerry Clemente (Ray Sharkey) carries a Smith & Wesson Model 36 Snubnose while as a Captain in the Medford Police Department and after his demotion to Sergeant. Superintendent Jake Quinn (Ed Asner) also carries a Model 36.

Smith & Wesson 3000 Shotgun

A double-action Smith & Wesson 4th Model is one of the revolvers sitting in front of "Doogie" Keeghan (Johnathan Holliday) when Clemente confronts them all for selling drugs and guns instead of keeping a low profile. Keeghan is another fictional name, changed from that of the real thief.
