The Potosi Journal August 14, 1895 Pg4

Last Monday night a burglar was discovered in the store of Mr. Charles Carr, at Caledonia. Mr. Carr slipped out and gathered several men to help him capture the thief.
The burglar had left Carr's store and was across the street trying to force an entrance into the store of C.L. Southall. He was called upon to halt, but instead tried to make his escape.
Joe Knox blasted him in the shoulder and side of the face with his shotgun and he was captured. His wounds are not life threatening.
He gives his name as William Fleming, but admits its not his real name. He had a burglar's kit in his possession.

The Holt County Sentinel (Oregon, Mo) December 13, 1867 Pg2

By an extra of the Gallatin Missourian, we learn that two of the Daviess county robbers have been arrested and are now in confinement at Gallatin.
One of them, named Sparks, was arrested at Seymore, Ind., the other, named John Reno, at Indianapolis, Ind.
Reno is denominated the great chief of Indiana and Missouri burglars. No money has yet been recovered, but the prospects for its recovery are good.
The cry is, " Hang them without judge or jury. Such men deserve no mercy."
