chief ot police in the basement, rob
bed thd safe of $10,000 and sped
away. .S : , ,
It was a neat and workmanlike job.
indicating that the robbers hailed
from Chicago. The work was com
pleted in IS minutes. It was done in
daylight, in a densely populated dis
crict, yet none of the hundreds pass
ing the sjfere- suspected what was
going on within. . -
Pucin demurred on ooeninz his
safe, but one of the robbers tapped
him on the head and then gave him
his 'choice of opening it up or being
a' corpse, so Pucin opened the stron?
box, which yielded an even $10,000
in bills. r -
From the chief of police the rob
bers took a baton.Tevolver, keys and
a pair of handcuffs. Then Pucin, the
chief and the other occupants of the
store were chased into the basement
and the doon was locked.
.Mrs. Pucin. who escaped, notified
police stations in all directions and
rifle squadrons immediately began
to patrol all roads, hut no trace has
been found of thejobbers, who were
driving a big gray touring car, pre
sumably stolen for the occasion. In
addition to the $10,000 from the safe,
the robbers gathered a big harvest
cf watches, rmrs and cash .from the
customers in ,the store. It was pay
day at the American Steel and Wire
plant nearby and Mr. Pucin : had
drawn $20,000. He had cashed checks
for the steel employes for half this
sum when the robbery took place.
