ARLINGTON Whoever said that crime doesnt pay didnt reckon with an unkown number of thieves who spent a cou ple of hours In Arlington last Wed nesday night and drove off with a load of loot valued at several hun dreds of Speculation dif fers on whether or not the bandits in Wednesday nights forray were the same ones who burglarized two local business places just last July those same two business places were among the six that were hit in last weeks Following is a list of the bus iness places entered and their respective losses are as follows Andersons Tavern Approx imately in money taken from the cash juke box and pool in bottled whisk in cigarettes and candy and a broken door and Seed orffs in change from the cash in six canned hams and all of the fresh meat in the display case and damage to three doors which were broken Belschner in silver from the cash a two crow bars and damage to the rear Felco Service in change from the cash register and a pop machine and approximately in tools as well as a jim mied B H in a wrecked but not opened safe and a jimmied rear Newton Motor CoTwo bro ken doors and the tumbler broken off the safe but not In view of the fact that neither of the safes damaged we re actually officers investigating the breakins theorize that the thieves are not experienced safe but they do think they knew what they were doing otherwise because they got so much done in a limited space of Fayette County sherrifs deputies Bill OLaughlin and Norman McCauleyand Hichard special agent for the Iowa Bureau of Criminal Invest igation are investigating the rob Investigation and a study of the items missing did reveal some in teresting and humerous facts of the They are as follows At Andersons the thieves must have anticipated some hangovers from all of the booze stolen be cause they took along a whole card of bromoseltzer They also must have been pleased with Weldons selection of cigarettes because they left behind a pack age they evidently didnt like and had stolen someplace else at Seed orffs the thieves evidently took time to wrap the meat they proving that they were at least neat tho not A sadistic quirk also appeared at Seedorffs be cause one of the marauders had neatly sliced off the end of a large watermelon and jammed a large pair of scissors right up to the hilt into the juicy center of the It was also quite evident that th robbers didnt care for bacon because they re moved a couple of good sized slabs from the display case and left them lying on the floorami at todays They must have visited U II Market towards the last when they were thirsty and hungry from all the carrying they had done till then for they downed a quart of milk and ate a few slices of lunch meat right on the That they were an enterprising lot was evident by the fact that they entered Belsch ners primarily to get the crow At that must be a ssumed because there were much more valuable items there than the radio ami the Somewhere on Thursday evening you can bet thai someone enjoyed a succulent chainsmoked their favorite brands of downed a few highballs secure in the fact that they had the cure for any resultant and after the steaks it is conceivable that they sat down for a friendly game of poker using the more than in change they gathered in their Wednesday night One thing for sure you can bet that there are many in Arlington who hope they clicked on the got tln goldarnedest hangover on the booze they ever had and developed cancer of the lungs from all of those TRY YOUR FOOTBALL SKILL Some forty area merchants ami professional
