Entrance Made Into Building By

Ws Bills Will
Things In County
Sometime Friday night or early
Saturday morning, the Waynesville
Wholesale Company safe was blown
open, and $006.89 in cash taken by a
thief or thieves. About $l,20l" in
checks was overlooked, according to
Ed Glavish, manager of the firm.
Police are working on the duos, and
the fingerprints they secured. How
ever, to date, no arrests have ben
made. Officers have several suspicions
as to the parties, and do not belie w
it was the work of professional safe
blowers, but a "local job."
The safe was so badly damaged that
it is not known whether it is worth
repairing or not. The safe and con
tents were covered bv insurance
i Entrance was made into the build
, ing by boring out a hole in the floor.
I The floor is a thick double one, and
5i holes were required to get the.
i square large enough for thein to enter,
i A liquid explosive was used, and
was set off by wires, which were run
under the building. Sa.-ks of beans
and flour were placed around the sate
door to kill the sound of the expkision, ,
It estimated that it required
every bit of two hours to drill the
holes in the floor, as the sills ae only
lti inches apart. ' j
.Mr. Glavish said thai by reason of I
the bank being closed Friday, account- 1
j el for the amount of cash in the safe. :
I The salesmen reported on Thursday ;
i and Friday, and brought in collections, i
j Several hundred dollar in govern-1
j nu-nt checks were left behind. j
! This is the second time that the
j bui'ding has been entered by boring a
j hole in the floor. The last time, sev
I years ago, only $5-7 wa.s stolen. o
i one was arrested for that crime.
