Burglars Break into Station

Herald of July 23, 1896
The Pennsylvania Railroad station was entered when burglars cut a hole in a window shutter and slipped the bolt. The money drawer of the ticket case was opened, but there was no money in it. A hole was bored in the door safe, but the burglars did not succeed in getting it open. In the wareroom a box of shoes consigned to C.A. Black of Clover Creek was opened and several pairs stolen. The tool house a short distance from the station was forced open and the tools taken that were used to gain entrance to the station.
