Jack Winters (1860s ?- ?)
In 1901, this Missourian pulled off the largest gold heist in United States history, all by himself.
He didn't get to keep it very long.

Bessemer Herald-- Bessemer Michigan August 31, 1901

BULLION THIEF WHO STOLE $ 283,000 IN GOLD FROM SELBY SMELTING WORKS

It now transpires that Jack Winters, who tunneled under the Selby Smelting Company's works near San Francisco, and removed $ 283,000 in gold bars from the vaults of the company, is an ex-convict, who has served time in the Missouri Penitentiary. He is wanted for various crimes committed in Missouri. Winters was formerly a railroad conductor running from St. Louis to Kansas City and from Kansas City to Fort Worth.
Following are the salient features of Winters' odd exploit:

Winters tunneled under the safe of the Selby Smelting Works with a common fire shovel.
He was six weeks in the tunneling.
He worked within five yards of the entrance to the smelter and within 20 feet from the tracks of the main line of the Southern Pacific Company.
He carried the dirt from his tunnel in a bag 50 yards and dumped it in the bay.
He concealed the excavation by day with a screen made of laths and a piece of cloth covered with loose dirt.
He was 3 nights in cutting under the brick foundation of the smelter.
He drilled 104 holes in the bottom of the vault.
He carried the stolen gold 500 yards and threw it into the bay.
He made 14 trips from the vault to the place he selected for hiding his plunder.
He traveled nearly seven miles.
Total weight of gold was over 900 pounds.

Southeast Missourian Cape Girardeau Mo. January 2, 1960

Prowlers----Three complaints of prowlers came into police headquarters Friday night. In each case, officers made a check but found no one. A woman in the 1000 block of North Frederick reported that someone was attempting to get in the front door of her home. Another woman resident of the 1000 block of Good Hope reported someone looking in the window of her house. The third complaint was from a resident residing on Maria Louise Lane and East Rodney. She told officers that someone was in her basement. When police investigated, she stated that she had heard a whistle as though a signal for others to run before police arrived.





St. Joseph, Mo., Jan. 3, 1930--- Postal mail carrier Peter Sauer was sentenced to 3 months imprisonment in September for rifling letters.
