Car Stolen in Grantsville in 1924


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 8/21/1924.

Some miscreant stole the new Chevrolet touring car of Garrett Kelley, of Mt. Zion, while it was parked in front of the Grantsville Theatre Friday night.  The state license number is 149-850; motor number 1390319; serial number 12F24691.  Mr. Kelley offers a reward of twenty-five dollars for information leading to the recovery of the car.  In such cases as this the local automobile club could get in some good work by aiding in the apprehension of the thief and the recovery of the car.  If Grantsville does not do something to show car owners that we will help protect them, our business places will lose a lot of valuable patronage from those living outside town.
