Police Spread Drag Net
Over Northern Vermont
Lyndonville has followed its thrills
of a tornado and murder and suicide
with one of the most daring automo
bile robberies that has been perpe
trated in this section in years. The
combined efforts of the police, cus

A" six-cylinder, 1!)20 model Stude-
baker car,' owned by Henry G. Mar
vin of Camden, South Carolina, was
taken from the Economy Garage
owned by Harris Allen, early Tues
day morning and at latest accounts
it had passed the customs authorities
at Derby Line and was speeding into
the province of Quebec. A dragnt
had been spread through very village
and town in an eqort to stop the
thieves but up to noon today no re
port had come of their apprehension.
Deputy Sheriff Garlield who has been
workinir on the case has been in
touch with Canadian authorities.
The story of the robbery starts
with the overturning of a 1920 Hud
son speedster in West Burke about i
midnight Sunday nitrht. This car
bore the Quebec number G70.
Monday morning Mr. Allen ot the
Economy Garage received word that
a car had been overturned on the
West Burke road and was asked to
come to the scene and tow the car
to his arage for repairs. He started
for West Burke but on the road met
a Lvndonville Creamery truck with
the damaged car in tow. There were
five young French fellows ranging in
age from 22 to "0 vears, with the
damaged car. They told a story of
having been mired in mud on a coun
try road for hours Sunday night and
then when on the West Burke road
having skidded and overturned. The
radiator was smashed, the windshield
broken and the front axle badly bent.
Mystery In Loss
of Water Pressure
Despite the best efforts of the
Fairbanks Company to locate the
trouble with the water system which
supplies St. Johnsbury they have
been unable so far io locate the

day by day but so far no break in
the main can be located. It was be
lieved air pressure had formed in the

Water pressure h.v. diminished
from 190 nounds (normal) to 45
pounds and in manv places today
water could scarcely be secured for
household use. Supt. Bvl of the

and that a 1920 Studebaker tar owned
by Mr. Marvin was missinsr. There
was also missing over $1200 worth
of propert" taken from other cars
stored in the garage.
Mr. Marvin conducts a summer
hotel at New London, N. H., and a
winter hotel at Camden, South Caro
lina. Members of his, family with the
chauffeur were in Lyndonville mak
ing a visit at the home of Thomas
McCondah. Thev had placed the car
in the Economy garage for storage
during their stay.
The five young men who came to
Lyndonville with the Quebec car
have not been seen since the disap
pearance of the Studebaker car.
Deputy Sheriff Garfield was called
to Lyndonville on the case. He
found that to get the Studebaker car
out of the garage, the thieves had
moved a large truck which was jack
ed up, and had pushed the heavy car
through a sand pile and around the
blacksmith shop. They had evidently
taken the precaution not to start the
car until it was in the main road
again. The tracks in the sand indi
cated clearly at least five different
sizes of shoes and styles of boots.
From the car of H. W. Boaz of
St. Albans, a travelintr salesman for
clothing and neckwear, the thieves
had stolen over $1,000 worth of
clothing and neck-wear samples. This
included men's and boy's clothimr of
all kinds. Thev stripned the Boaz
car of everything but the tools. They
also took a heavy lap-robe valued at
$14 from another car and stripped
the Quebec car of everything of
value that could .be taken. From the
office they had taken 20 one-gallon
cans of Monogram oil.
The Studebaker car of Mr. Marvin
carried two sets of number plates,
one from New Hampshire and the
other South Carolina. Mr. Garfield
found that a Studebaker car had
been registered at the U. S. Customs
office at Derby Line at 1.30 a. m..
Tuesday morning and was registered
under the New Hampshire numbers.
