Deputy Sheriff Makes Quick Arrest
Pat Lacey was arrested at Chiwau
kum late Tuesday evening by Deputy
Sheriff Hamilton for the theft of $59
and some odd cents which he had ta
ken from the bakery shop conducted
by Sam Knowlton. Mr. Knowlton had
left the money in a pocket book, lay
ing on the cash register, and when he
first noticed that it was missing, sus
pected Lacey who had been doing
odd jobs around the bakery for him
and immediately notified the police.
No trace of the man was found up to
S:3O in the evening, and Mr. Ham
ilton decided to make a trip to Chi
waukum thinking that possibly the fel
low had gone to that place with the
intention of taking a train from there.
His hunch proved to be right for no
sooner had the train stopped than the
fugitive piled on board. Mr. Hamil
ton returned with his prisoner to this
city and after given a hearing was ta
ken to Wenatchee on the morning
train. The missing money was all
found in Lacey's possession with the
exception of a few cents that he had
spent. Lacey formerly conducted the
Rainier Annex Lunch counter but will
now have a chance to deal out sand
wiches to the inmates of the Walla
Walla penitentiary as his offense will
