Thieves Enter Farm Dwelling

This story was published by The Ypsilanti Daily Press on Friday, September 9, 1932. Percy Hollaway, R. F. D. 3, Ypsilanti, reported to the state police at 11 o’clock Wednesday night that his house had been entered and goods valued at about $500 were missing. Mr. Hollaway and his family left the house at 6:30 and did not return until 10:30 when they discovered the theft. Entrance had been gained by cutting the screen on a door and unhooking it. Goods reported stolen to Trooper Conrad Konetshny, who investigated, included a dinner set of 100 pieces, linen valued at $75, a rug valued at $200 and about $150 of wearing apparel. No clues have been discovered but Lieutenant Lyle Morse, finger print expert of the state police has been sent for.
