Chariton Courier July 19, 1879 Pg3

James Owens, who was arrested in Ray county about two weeks ago, charged with horse stealing, was Wednesday indicted in Richmond, by a special grand jury empaneled for the purpose of looking into his case. After being indicted, he went before Judge Dunn, of the circuit court, and pleaded guilty to the charge and got two years in the pen at Jefferson City for so-doing.
After pleading guilty, he took a good look at the grand jury, and said as soon as his time was out he was coming back to steal a horse from each of them, and, if any were too poor to have a horse, he would kick them out of town.
Owens is wanted at two other places for horse stealing.

Two Monett boys were arrested Thursday by Deputy Sheriff Joe Jackson for stealing eggs from the Martin hotel. One of the boys was employed there and stole the eggs and gave them to the other boy who sold them. They sold 8 dozen to Mr. Trimble, who recently bought the Dorris restaurant.

Ripley County Democrat (Doniphan Mo) November 13, 1908

Safe blowers in Higginsville secured only $4 and are still dodging arrest. The game generally doesn't seem to be worth the nitroglycerin.

The post office at Senath, Dunklin county, was robbed last week and money and stamps valued at $675 stolen.
