Sul'e of the Treasury of Aiacbo
County ltobbed of $11,100,54
by Five Masked Men.
(SI. John, Herald. 1
On Sunday evening about 7 o'clock
five masked men went to the house of
Francisco Ba:a, deputy treasurer, and
forcing in the door, made a rush for the
bed where he was sleeping, and grabbing
his pants, commenced searnhing the
pockets, taking the keys f the in
side door and vault of the safe. ''Ihey
then at the point of the pistol compelled
him 10 get up and dress; two of the par
ty remaining to prevent the inmates from
giving an alarm. The others took him
to the treasurer's room in the court
houe and compelled him to open the
iafe, the outsidedoors of which is worked
by a combination lock. After the safe
had been opened the robbers ransacked
tne contents, taking over eleven thousand
doll irs in cash, itoout two thousand of
which was in gold ind silver coin. At
the tiin.' there was over fixe thousand
dollars in checks which the rubbers did
not get, probably not wishing to take the
risk of negotiating them, they all being
for sums ranging from $100 to $900.
After taking the funds from the safe,
the robbers went out the door of the
treasurer's room, and Mr. Baca immedi
ately gave the alarm, but the night being
dark and stoimy, notracecould be found
of them. As near as can be ascertained
the guard who stopped at the house of
Mr. Baca, left about the same time as did
the persons who did .the robbery at the
court-house. The robbery was evidently
well planned, as every movement seems
to have gone as smooth as clock work
the whole transaction occupying less than
half an hour.
The stfe in which the county money is
kept is of the Baird make, combination
lock on the outside doors, with inside or
day doors, and an inside screw door, iron
and steel vault, to which is fastened a
time-lock attachment, but the latter has
never been put in working order aincc
its arrival here.
Up to the present time, as far as we
can learn, no news has been obtained
as to who the robbers were, what direc
tion they took, or whether they have left
the town or not. Although the night was
stormy and it had rained just before the
robbery, no tracks have been found,
leaving the town in any direction, the en
tire town having been circled just after
day-break the next morning.
Deputy Sheriff Tom Hubbell, with a
party of men have been almost contsant
ly in the saddle since Monday moining
scouring the country for miles around,
with hopes of getting some clue or infor
mation as what manner tht robbers left
the town and in what direction.
Several warrants have been issued di
recting the sheriff to search houses both
in St. Johns, Springville and adjacent
ranches, but returns from those executed
fail to elicit any clue.
Warrants have been issued for the ar
rest of several parties, on suspicion of
being implicated in the robbery. Five
arrests have so far been made, with war
rants out for several more. The gentle
men who have been so unfortunate as to
be arrested on suspicion of being con
nected with the robbery are Messrs.
Phin Clanton, Ike Clanton, Ebn Stanley
and Lee Renfrow, of Springville, and
Mr. Buck Henderson, of St. Johns.
These gentlemen will probably have a
hearing on Friday or Saturday, the dis
trict attorney not being able to get the
information desired or witnesses before
that time.
