ROBBED FREDDI E YAGER'S SAFE.
Five Dollars Secured During the Bartender's Temporary
absence - Residences Entered.
E. Pluribus Unum Clay, Edward
Dunn and Leroy Potterfield were arrested
yesterday morning by Detective Marks. Dunn
has been working for Freddie Yager, and yesterday
morning when the bartender opened the store Dunn
came in and began scrubbing the floor. The
bartender opened the safe to get some money with which
to pay the ice man, and did not relock it. He went
into the back room, leaving Dunn still at work.
Dunn opened the safe and took from it $5 in
quarters. He took the money and gave it to Clay,
and told him to keep it. When arrested by
Detective Marks, he denied it, but when Marks
threatened to lock him up anyway he confessed and told
Marks and Clay had the money. The men have
been on the bum and came here from Greenview, Miss.
A charge of larceny was made against Dunn, and
Clay and Potterfield are charged with being
Burglars who were evidently hungry entered the
residence of Deputy Sheriff Charles Seaman, No.
624 South Fifth Street and cleaned out the pantry.
It is supposed to have happened early yesterday morning.
They gained admittance to the house through the pantry
window. Nothing but edibles were taken.
THESE THIEVES WERE HUNGRY, TOO.
When Harry McGrue's "chef-de-cuisine"
waltzed gaily out to the summer kitchen yesterday
morning to prepare the breakfast, she found that some
measly tramp had crawled through the window and carried
off everything but the stove, and a small but vigorous
army of indignant flies. "By golly," she said,
when she went over to a neighbor's house to borrow
enough to keep the family from starving until the stores
opened, "they took a side of breakfast bacon, ten pounds
of lard, nearly a dollar's worth of sugar, all the
flour, and, in fact, everything that was fit to eat;
enough, indeed, to last us a whole week. I just
wish that I could have caught the scamps," she added, as
she went out, and it is lucky for the thieves that
Molly failed to meet them.
Mr. McGrue lives at No. 822 East Capitol avenue,
and he is mad, too.
ENTERED L. M. HESS' RESIDENCE.
While the family were away
from home last Friday, burglars entered the residence of
L. M. Hess, No. 520 South Walnut street, and
secured several dollars.
