Ingenthron locked up their store
before nine o'clock. About 30

that the window had been pried
open with a small bar or box
opener and fresh rubber boot
tracks told which way the bur
gler had gone. No arrests have
yet been made.

was repaired and the pressure
turned on agtfin before eight
o'clock that night.
