BURGLARS ROB STANARD HOME

Burglars entered the residence of former Lieutenant Governor E.O. Stanard, Lindell boulevard and Taylor avenue, last night, while the members of the family were at church, and stole jewelry.
The first intimation that the house had been robbed was when one of the members of the family entered a bedroom on the second floor. The room was in disorder, the contents of the drawers in the bureau were overturned on the floor and articles of clothing were scattered around.
Mr. Stanard sent his coachman in search of a policeman. He found Patrolman John Mohr, and the house was searched.
The doors and windows on the first floor were found securely fastened, but the window in the room where the presence of the burglar had been discovered was found raised several inches. Patrolman Mohr climbed out on the roof of the porch, which is a few inches below the level of the window sill. With the aid of a lantern he found several deep scratches, indicating that someone had walked there recently.
Further search developed that one of the pillars supporting the porch was scraped. It is believed that the burglar, learning that the members of the family were absent, had entered the house in that manner.

ITEMS STOLEN:

Butterfly Stickpin, Ruby And Diamonds
Opal Stickpin With 12 Diamonds
Round Pearl Buckle
Norwegian Pin, Blue Enamel
Norman Head Breastpin

St. Joseph Gazette May 2, 1891

KNEW HIS BUSINESS

St. Louis, May 1---Mr. Henry Diehl, residing at 3021 Garfield avenue, was robbed of $700 in a very mysterious manner last Wednesday night, and the police detectives have been making ineffectual efforts to ascertain how and by whom the robbery was committed.
Mr. Diehl retired Wednesday evening, placing the money in a closet adjoining his bedroom. Upon arising in the morning and going to the closet he was astonished to find the money gone. The door of the room was locked, and Mr. Diehl could not account for the manner in which the thief gained access to the money. He heard no noise during the night.
He reported the theft to Captain Campbell, who made an investigation, but nothing could be learned, as the thief left no clue.
The work was presumably that of an expert house breaker, who knew that Mr. Diehl had the money and where he placed it. The remarkable manner in which the thief entered the room and noiselessly effected the theft has confounded the police.
