GRIP FOUND BADLY BATTERED
As the Result of a Practical Joke and
Almost Under the Commercial Man's
Eyes , His Big Sample Case Was
Taken Late Saturday Night ,
A bold grip theft occurred at 10
o'clock Snturdny night In Norfolk
when a Inrgo leather bag belonging to
joorgo J. O'Brien , commercial trav
eler for Hlhbard-Spencer , Bnrtlctt &
2o. , of Chlcngo , wns nabbed almost
icforo the eyes of the owner , and
inrrled successfully nway. Mr.
O'Brien missed the grip a moment lat
er , started In search of the bag and
found It behind a barn In an alley ,
where it had been taken by the thief
nnd bnttored to plecea In order to gain
cntrnnco to the Uisltlc. A number of
vnlu.iblo letters from his house and
customers were taken out but two
nigo books were untouched. The letters
tors contained no money. The theft
was the remilt of a practical Joke.
Mr. O'Brien had stopped In nt the
Humphrey furnishing store and was
Joined there by J. J. Saxo , another
commercial traveler , both of them be
ing aeatetl to talk orer the week. Mr.
O'Brien nt thnt time dropped hla big ,
heavy grip Juat Inaltlo the main en
trnnco door of the store. A moment
Inter Fritz Frohloff came by theatore ,
saw the grip nnd the owner and , aa
Mr , O'Brien sella gooda In the Degner
hardware store where Mr. Frohloff
works , Mr. Frohloff , In a jolly mood ,
Jokingly plckciLup the grip and start
ed away with It. Mr. O'Brien glnncod
through the window nt hla friend and
motioned to Frohloff to go on with the
grip nnd carry it to the Oxnnrd , where
ho wns stopping. Mr. Frohloff cnrried
the grip for n llttlo way and tnen re
turned it , dropping It just outside the
door , with the remark that It was too
No more wna thought of the grip
until , shortly nfterward , Mr. O'Brien
started to leave. He looked for his
grip just outside the door and found
It missing. Ho immediately started
to bunt it , went around into the alloy
behind the store nntl there , alongside
a barn , he stumbled upon the case in
the darn. It was especially weighty
because of two huge books that it con-
An examination showed that the !
grip , In being opened , had been badly
used , the metal portion being a ) '
pounded and battered.
It Is believed that the thief is known
as but one person was seen' passing
the window between the time Frohloff
dropped the grip and the time when
Mr. O'Urlen loft. An arrest may fol
The thief was unquestionably led to
the belief that them was money In
the letters , because of the fact that
Mr. Saxe had , while the thlof wns
passing , probably opened a couple of
letters that contained money. The
grip could easily have been taken for
a personal bag instead of a hardware
salesman's sample case.
