Burglars Rob Bread Wagon Of 67 Loaves And Cakes

Police were immediately notified and scoured the city early this morning but found only half a loaf.
Showing a preference for the Jefferson Baking Company's Quaker bread, thieves early this morning looted two bread trucks near the baking company's plant at High and Chestnut streets. Police were notified shortly after the burglary and scoured the city in search of the thieves. All they found was a half a loaf of bread a short distance from the bakery.
The trucks are driven to the side entrance of the bakery, loaded and then returned to the garage to await the drivers. The thieves got in their work between the time the trucks were loaded and returned to the inside of the bakery, the police said. 15 loaves of Vienna bread, 5 loaves of potato bread, 3 of whole wheat, 4 rye, 40 Quaker and 4 boxes of cakes were removed by the thieves.
The burglary was discovered a short time after it occurred and the police were immediately summoned.
Police are certain the thieves watched proceedings at the bakery several mornings and timed their raid perfectly.

Burglar Stuns 2 Helpless Women With Iron Jimmy

Miss Matilda Geis and Mrs. Lena Klein, sisters, living at 1920 Sidney street, were beaten over the head by a burglar armed with a jimmy early Saturday morning. Each sustained severe scalp wounds, and after the assault the burglar escaped.
Miss Geis is an invalid and when the burglar stood over her bed flashing a dark lantern in her face, she awoke with a scream. "Shut up!" said the burglar. "Keep quiet and get me your money and I won't hurt you." "Get away from the bed and I will get up." said Miss Geis. The burglar stepped back and Miss Geis slipped out of bed and ran to an open window from which she thrust her head and yelled for help.
Grabbing her by the night dress the burglar pulled her back into the room and struck her over the head with an iron jimmy. The blow stunned Miss Geis for a moment and awakened her sister, Mrs. Lena Klein, who was sleeping in the next room with her niece, Miss Amelia Hack.
Mrs. Klein started into the room where the burglar stood over the prostrate form of Miss Geis, and as she entered, the burglar seized her and said, "Get me your money and keep quiet."
"I have no money in the house," said Mrs. Klein. Then she began to scream for help and the burglar struck her over the head with his jimmy. She kept on screaming and was struck a second time with such force that she fell to the floor unconscious. The niece, Miss Hack, began to scream for help.
"You don't want to get what they got, do you?" asked the burglar as he pointed to the two women.
"If you make a fuss I'll crack you over the head, too."
Miss Hack kept quiet and the burglar left the house, going out through a rear door. Then miss Hack ran to the telephone to call the police and found the wire cut.
The screams of the women awakened some of the neighbors and Fred K Miller of 1919 Sidney street came to the door. He did not go into the house, but went in search of a policeman. It was 30 minutes before a policeman could be found, and this finally was accomplished by one of the neighbors calling up the station.
Henry Loesch of 1916 Sidney street was awakened by the screams and saw the burglar fleeing through the alley.
Mrs. Klein is 69 years old and Miss Geis is 55, Miss Hack is 20. The women describe the burglar as being an effeminate looking young man about 22 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall, slightly built and wearing a dark suit with a light colored Fedora hat and a tan overcoat.
Mrs. Klein was the worse injured of the two and was weak Saturday morning from loss of blood. Miss Geis did not suffer much from the blow she received on the head, she has been an invalid for years and the incident is expected to have a bad effect on her.

Two Policemen Indicted For Second Degree Burglary

Gustave Vollmer and Joseph Turner have been charged with second degree burglary in connection with the burglary of a North Broadway candy store after the finding of a policeman's brass button at the scene of the robbery.
Patrolman Vollmer confessed and implicated probationary patrolman Turner after the button had been identified as having been torn from the tail of Vollmer's uniform. A search of the homes of both patrolmen disclosed a quantity of candy and cigarettes which had been taken in the robbery. Turner maintained that his arrest was a frame-up by bootleggers he harassed. The resignations of both men from the police department have been accepted.

Fugitive Arrested In State Park Sunday

Sheriff George W Campbell of Washington County came into Sullivan Sunday and secured the help of Deputy Sheriff James Wade in arresting Wilbur Harmon who was reported to be in Meramec State Park.
Wade and Campbell proceeded down the State Park road and found Harmon in a car in the park with three of four other young men and proceeded to arrest Harmon after a chase and some shooting.
Harmon was wanted in Washington County for a severe stabbing two or three years ago at a church in the Northcutt neighborhood where a son of Rev. Maness was stabbed. He had been reported seen in the county several times since his escape but always managed to make good his escape before officers could apprehend him.




On June 15, 1942, a burglar climbed a tree behind a St. Louis jewelry store and got onto the roof. He then cut a hole and climbed down inside where he stole $1000 worth of jewelry and left a note that read, "The Snake Was Here."

St. Louis Post-Dispatch October 30, 1965


Two men were arrested last night in Stix, Baer & Fuller Westroads store on suspicion of having broken into a Frontenac home a few hours earlier. They were taken into custody when they attempted to buy clothing with a charge plate issued to the burglary victim. Those booked by Richmond Heights police on suspicion of burglary and fraudulent use of a credit device were Salvatore S Levantino, 34 years old, 2300 block of Flamingo drive in Florissant, and Richard Dodd, 27, of the 400 block of Warford avenue, Ferguson.
The charge plate had been issued to Mrs. Carl J Kahlmeyer, 1 Portland drive, Frontenac.
About 1 p.m. yesterday, Mrs. Kahlmeyer arrived home to find a man in white overalls carrying appliances from her home. The burglar bound Mrs. Kahlmeyer and continued loading loot into a pickup truck.
Jewelry and property valued at several thousand dollars were taken.
Mrs. Kahlmeyer, 57, was partially freed by her 3-year-old grandson, Chris Kahlmeyer, who was with her but not bound by the burglar. She was able to walk next door and call police. Frontenac police said the burglars entered the Kahlmeyer home by breaking a window. Levantino and Dodd were held by Richmond Heights police, with hold orders issued against them by Frontenac, Ladue, and Jennings police. They denied knowledge of the Kahlmeyer burglary.

Often-Arrested Men To Be Questioned In Thefts

Harvey Miller, James (Red) Cooper, and Arthur Berne, often-arrested police characters, were held for investigation following their arrest early today when cruising in the West End in James' automobile, which had a radio tuned to police frequency.
A patrolman saw the car leave the driveway of the Chapman Bros. Cleaning & Dyeing Co. at 5917 Delmar boulevard, at 2 a.m. He notified the Page Boulevard District and two squad cars were sent out to pick up the suspicious characters. The police overtook the machine at Kingsbury and Des Peres avenues and arrested Cooper, Miller, and Berne.
A search of the machine revealed a flashlight and 3 pairs of gloves. While examination of the radio showed that the police radio, KGPC, could be tuned in by pushing a button designated with the letters of a commercial station. Miller and Cooper have been at liberty on bond from convictions in a $5500 safe burglary at the Norside Theatre last September 3. Miller is also under bond in a second conviction and Berne is on bond on burglary and larceny charges in the city and county.
They are held at Page Boulevard station and will be questioned in recent burglaries.

Counterfeiter Dead

Recluse Found Dead In Meramec River

A.B. Small, fisherman, tie cutter, bachelor recluse, was found dead in shallow water, by his boat in the Meramec river last Thursday near the mouth of the Indian Creek, 6 miles south of St. Clair.
Small lived in a little log cabin, up a narrow valley, about a mile from the river. He was considered peculiar and a recluse, but did tie making and other chopping for those who needed work of that kind done, and earned his living in that way, it was supposed.
But search of his cabin by the coroner revealed considerable counterfeit money in dollars and half-dollar coins. A search later by the coroner and prosecuting attorney and a secret service man from St. Louis, discovered 7 plaster of paris dies for molding the coins.
The man's brother had been with him for some time but left only a few days before his death. How the counterfeit money was disposed of is not known as none was ever discovered being circulated in the community.
It seemed evident that the man had been shot by someone at considerable distance, for while most of the shot had taken effect in the left side in the region of the heart, some had struck his face and some as low down as the hip. No clue was at first known as to who did the shooting. Suspicion soon rested on one, John Heads, living in a cabin a few miles from the dead man's cabin. He had been heard to charge Small with being to attentive to his wife and was the only person known to be an enemy to Small.
He was arrested Sunday by Deputy Sheriff J.N. Cardwell of St. Clair, on a warrant charging him with murder and is now in jail at Union.
Small's custom was to go to the river every evening, cross in a boat and visit his mailbox on the other side. It is evident that he had been for his mail Wednesday evening, for when found, he had a letter in his pocket he had just received. He was shot on his return in the boat before landing and left in the shallow water, where the body fell. Robbery could not have been the object, as money he had in his pocket was not taken.
One feature in the case would indicate that it might be a case of accident. His own shotgun was found near him in the water, with an empty shell, and but for the scattered condition of the shot striking him, the accident theory would be very plausible.

Bold Daylight Robbery

Early Thursday morning a Frisco freight pulled into the southwest part of town and the crew went to breakfast. When they returned to the train one of the cars had been broken open and merchandise taken. The section men found the stolen goods hidden under the end of the Frisco bridge across the Meramec. Probably the thieves intended to return later and haul the stuff away.

Rolla Man Charged With First Degree Murder

James Wagoner of Rolla has been charged with first degree murder in connection with the burning death of his brother-in-law, Marion Cox, on March 11, according to the Rolla New Era.
The charge was filed by States Attorney Lyle Bradford on April 12, and the preliminary hearing is scheduled to be held Saturday.
The charge grew out of investigation in the mysterious death of Cox after a coroner's jury returned a verdict of death at the hands of a person or persons unknown. On the evening of March 21, Cox stumbled from his home with his clothing on fire and died some time later in the hospital. Witnesses at the inquest testified that a man and woman left the Cox home shortly before the victim stumbled out.

Sounds like the murderer was John Heads in this one, though he may have had an accident with his own gun. Doubtful on that, because of the way the bullet spray went down.
