FIND LOOT IN STORE THEFT

Six suits of clothes and an overcoat, stolen from the Buckner-Ragsdale Co. store Sunday night in a bold burglary, were recovered by police and Detective R.J. Dixon today.
The officers said the clothing was found in a vacant house on North street, in a closet in a second floor room.
Police also said that two men, held as suspects in the burglary, were arrested shortly after the discovery of the loot. These suspects, whose names were withheld by police, are being held incommunicado.
The Buckner-Ragsdale store was burglarized by thieves who smashed a glass to gain entrance. The same night, Kinder's drug store was entered and some money was taken.
Last week the Goddard Grocer Co. wholesale house on Main street was entered and several thousand cigarettes taken.
