SS Store Robbed

Burglars entered the store of Cleo Gainer & Company in South Grantsville Friday night and made away with a small sum of money left in the register and numerous articles of clothing and groceries.

Entrance was effected by breaking a window towards the rear of the building.  O.W. Hathaway, manager of the store, was unable to make a complete check of missing articles, but was in no doubt that a considerable list of goods had been taken.

State police from the Glenville detachment investigated the robbery, but so far no arrests have been made.
