Groceries Discovered beside Road, may be loot from robbery

This story was published by The Ypsilanti Daily Press on Monday, June 4, 1934.

Police are seeking ownership of a large quantity of groceries found beside a subdivision road between Washtenaw Ave. and Packard St. Sunday night. It is believed the merchandise which also included a victrola, was the loot from a grocery store robbery and had been piled at that place preparatory to loading it into a car. A check of grocery stores here failed to reveal a theft and no reports were received this morning indicating that the depredation had been in Ypsilanti.

There was a four pound box of tea, a large package of shredded cocoanut, a quantity of vinegar, boxes of marshmallows and cans of spinach, pineapple and tomatoes
