THREE TAKEN AT MUNCIE HEAD OF RICHMOND POLICE DE PARTMENT SUGGESTS THAT FARMERS DO NOT BUY HORSES UNLESS THEY KNOW OWNER. Horse thieving seems to be a popu lar pastime with scores of crooks in different parts of the state just now, and every day, reports of animals be ing stolen are received at the ' local police headquarters with instructions to keep on the lookout for the thieves and the rigs and make arrests if pos sible. Yesterday afternoon Supt. Bailey received a telephone message from Muncie, saying that three horses were stolen from a pasture near that city on Tuesday night. One was a black horse, another a biacK mare and the third was a bay mare. All were in good condition and fine horses. A re ward is offered for their return to their owner. Supt. Bailey announces to all farm ers and horse traders that it is best to know whose horse is being sold when a stranger offers one at a cheap price. Just now, there are many sales being held in different parts of the state, and the animals can be easily disposed of by an accomplished crook, who knows his trade. Many are sold to farmers for a email amount of money, and if the farmer is detected, he will have to give up the horse, and may be prosecuted for buying stolen goods. IS HANLY SELECTS MEMBERS.
