THE POLICE CATCH
The Lihue police believe they
have at last captured the burglar
who, in the past few weeks, has
robbed a number o t daces i n
The man is one Julio dela Cruz,
released only a few months ago
,from the Territorial pcnetentiaiyi
He has confessed to two burglaries,
and will enlighten the police as to
others that have been more or less
of a puzzle.
The burglary that led to the ar
rkst occurred at an early hour Sat
urday morning, when the barber
' shop at Hanamaulu was entered
In that instance the thief broke a
pane of glass in a front window,
drew the catch on the inside and
lifted the window. The valuables
of the Japanese proprietor of the
shop was kept in a drawer in a
small desk. With an augur bit he
opened this drawer and abstracted
therefrom $75 in gold, $3.50 in sil
ver, two Hawaiian dimes and a
pair of solid gold cuff buttons.
Absolutely no clue was left be
It developed, however, that the
night before a burglar tried to en
ter the store of Ah Chock, at Ka
paia, In fact two attempts were
made, but in both instances the
Chinese in the place weie alert and
frightened the burglar away.
.In making off .from .Ah Chock's
the thief left a shoe behind. It
was a small shoe, indicating that
"Y" belonged to an Asiatic or Porto
J. H. Coney, who has had .a
great deal of experience in detec
tive work, came into t h, e case
along there somewhere, and be
gan to make inquiries as to the
whereabouts of one or two ex-jailbirds.
It was found that de la
Cruz, since leaving the Territorial
prison, had been living with Offi
cer Enoka Lovell, also Jailor Dias
and also Deputy Sheriff Ellis, the
presumption being that they were
trying to straigthen him up and
make a man of him again
Detective Cone y's inquiries
brought de la Cruz to mind, and
one of Lovell's sons identified the
shoe as belonging to that indivi
A search was then instituted for
de la Cruz, and he was nabbed at
Kapaa. At the time of his capture
he had on his person $110 in gold
and 45 cents in silver.
,vt first he refused to answer
questions or talk, but gathering
" from the line of questions that the
officers knew of his guilt, he admit
ted the robbery of the barber shop.
The officers took him to the shop
in Hanamaulu and he explained to
them in detail how he had effected
an entrance and accomplished his
purpose. He also admitted having
tried to rob the Ah Chock .store
The police are confident that de
la Cruz committed three recent
burglaries in Nawiliwili, and was
probably at the bottom of other
cases farther away.
De la Cruz was sent to the pene
tentiary from Waimea for assault
with a dangerous weapon.
