ROBBER CAUGHT
AFTER BEING
TRAILED
Following an attempt to cash a Co
rey Bros Construction company time
check, which was stolen yesterday
from Joe Mosl of Salt Lake, a Greek
who gave hie name as Mike Burr, a
arrested this morning after being fol
lowed and captured by James Drys
dale. Janitor at the Utah National
bank. It Is believed that Burr also
robbed Mosel of cash amounting io
50 when the check was taken. The
Salt Lake authorities have been noti
fied The Utah National bank this morn
ing received a letter rova A. S. Corey
of the Salt Lake office of the con
struction company, asking the bank
not to cash a check drawn In favor
of Joe Mosel for $77 96, as the check
had been stolen during the night
Shortly after the tellers had been
made acquainted with the contents of
the letter, a Greek presented the
check to Paul Lee. Lee questioned
the man who showed signs of alarm
Ralph Hoag, the president of the bank
was called and to keep the man
around he told him to accompany
Jame6 Drysdale to the Corey office
above the bank to get a regular check
for his time receipt. When the two
left the bank, the police were noti
fied Burr was alarmed, however, and in
stead of going with Drysdale, who
had the check, Burr started down
Twenty-fourth street. Drysdale did
not know the circumstances and nul
not follow until told to do so hen
Drysdale started out. Earl Thomas
also left to put the police on the trail
Drysdale followed the man through
various streets without meeting a
policeman. Finally, when the Greek
stopped near the forestry building.
Drysdale told him he was wanted and
began to march the fellow along Lin
coin to Twenty fifth street Drysdale
said that Burr offered him $10 to
release him and when his captor re
fused, raised the sum to $20 and fi
nally to $50.
When the two were walking toward
Twenty-fifth street, an excited man
came up and shouted that Burr Wat
the man he was looking for. as he
had robbed a man in Salt Lake. TTre
stranger did not know Drysdale and
for a time thought he was dealing
with two desperate men When the
situation was explained he occompan
ied Drysdale and his captive to the
Board of Trade saloon at Lincoln
avenue and Twenty fifth street and
a call was sent to police headquarters.
Sergeant Layne responded with the
patrol and all three went to the sta
tion. When Burr was searched, over $47
In siUer and currency was found
The man who had come from Salt
Lake said that Burr did not have any
money last night.
According to the story related by
Mosel in the Salt Lake office of the
construction company. Moscl and Burr
slept in the same room laBt night
When he awoke this morning. Burr
was gone, and his time check nnd
about $50 in money had disappeared.
It is presumed that Burr came to Og
den on an early train as he was at
the bank shortly after it opened for
business
