Negro who Broke into Wi. Solomon's
Store lin uled Into ,l11.
One Charlie Williams, who claims
Greenwood as his native haunt. was
arrested here Monday for breaking in
to W. Solototn's store several weeks
ago. The arrest was mait(10 possible
through somte good detective work ott
the part of Policeman Dodson. It was
discovered several days ago that a cer
tain negro was peddling watch cases
and other jewelry around town.
'T'hrough a little conversation and
careful watching the charge was laid
at the (loot of the aforesaid Charlie
Williams. Stinday evening he arrived
in port from a neighboring burgh and
was immediately nabbed. lie was plac
ed in the city lockup and kept until
Monday afternoon when he was haul
ed over to the county jail. While
boarding with the city Charlie became
anxious for a little fresh air and
started to dig his way out. lie was
just on the point of coming in close
contact with the outer world when his
intention:; were disenvered and lie was
gently shoved back. lie is now safe.
Several watch cases and a few small
trinkets were found on the person of
the arrested negro.
