Chenoweth Store Looted

The large general store of D.O. Chenoweth, of Nicut, was broken into by burglars and looted of merchandise valued at $150 Thursday night of last week sometime after the store had been closed for the day.

The missing merchandise consisted mostly of clothing and tobaccos, no foodstuffs being tampered with.  The Nicut postoffice is also kept in the building but was not molested.

Sergeant C.W. Ray and Trooper Claude Heffner, of the Glenville detachment of the state police force, were notified and were soon on the scene of the robbery.  So far no arrests have been made
