Thomas Woods, colored, alias f Harry
Matthews, alias Harry Stewart, was
arrested and landed in jail Monday
night by ratrolman i? red Link, on a
charge of robbery, and according to in
formation may be a fugitive from
Atlanta. Ga.. wanted in that city for
The arrest of Woods came about
after a week of clever work on the
nart of Patrolman Link,' who has been
on the close lookout for a number of
thieves that have teen opeiating in
this city. Woods, it is beileved, is at
the head of an organized banc1 that
have centered their opreations on the
groceries and othei stores in Paris,
and have succeeded in making away
with a large amount of goods.
A few weeks Hgo the News publish'
ed an account 01 a very Doid and suc
cessful scheme on the part of the
negroes in tha theft of goods from
various grocery stores and when the
matter was reported to the police
Patrolman Link went to work on the
case. Sunday night he met Woods on
the street and on being unable to give
a satisfactory account of where he had
been during the night was told by the
ofheer to go to Ins home. This move
of the officer was for the purpose of
getting an idea of where the negro
WGods succeeded in getting away
but on Monday night Patrolman Link
came across him again, ana on this oc
casion he was carrying a bundle. Link
followed jhim td the restaurant of
Rachel Jefferson on Eighth street,
where h arrested the negro who was
making an effort to dispose of the
package, which contained a side of
bacon, to the negress.
Wbods was employed with a construc
tion company here arid a companion
has given the information to the
officers that the negro is wanted in
Atlanta, Ga., for murder. Woods ad
mitted to the officers that he came here
from Atlanta. The local department
communicated with the police depart
ment of that city, and a reply is ex
pected at any time. It is said' a big
reward is offered for the capture of
the Atlanta murderer, and in case
VVoods should be the man wanted by
the Atlanta police, this reward will go
to Patrolman Link.
Will Smith, a negro, who it is said
has been associated with Woods and
others in their operations in Paris was
arrested' Wednesday night by Patrol
men Link and McKenney and locked
up. It is expected the remainder of
the organized band will bp run in
within the next tew days, lheir ar
rest will have the effect of breaking
no the boldest band of thieves that
ever struck- Faris.
