BREAKING INTO SEV
Six Were Brought Back to Ander
son and Placed In the
Sheriff Ashley and Deputy Sheriff
Sunders relumed from Greenville
yesterday morning about li o'clock
where they had spent nearly all of
Thursday in rounding up what seems
to be an organized band of burglars
wh'o have broken into several ?'.tores In
tho eastern part of the county. Six
arrests were made. Those placed in
tito county jail nre: Edgar Jamos,
Hoy Green, li. B. Petterson, Earle
'Graham, Cora McNInch and Lula ll un
it r, nil negroes,
These arrests are the result of Ute
untiring efforts of Sheriff Ashley and
his deputies to solve what was al
most a myBtory in connection with
robberies" in Pelzer und Wllliamston.
Within the past ten weekB four stores
have been robbed at these two places,
and in each case, the burglars made
' good their escape. The first store
robbed was that cf CrenBhaw & Alli
son in Pelter: Then followed Greg
ory's store in Wllllamston. Next
carno lludgins & Ragsdale's place in
Polser, and carly this week, Tho Pal
. tnetto, a mercantile establishment in
;'Pol ker, wus also fcayglarlaed.
tn* each' lnatanco tho articles stol
en, from the stores were about thc
?ame things that had been stolen
from the others. They Included men
and women's clothing, Bhoes, sock*
and stockings, shirts,' collars! ties
.etc. The county officers. took an in
ventory of those articles and this
' enabled them to'pick the, right ne
groes to a large degreo on Thurs
lt seems that the headquarters o:
the hand were In Greenville and that
tho members worked out from there.
"Nearly all of those arrested had ot.
somo of the stolen goods.' Two ot
th? negroes, Earle Graham and Ed
gar James* formerly traveled with t.
carnival and got laid, off In Green
