Caddo Herald-June 10, 1910
Dodd's Store Burgled
On Monday night unknown parties entered the Corner Drug Store stole sixteen trays of jewelry, $1,500 in cash and a few cigars. Mr. Dodd estimates his loss at several hundred dollars. Entrance to the building was gained by breaking a small hole in the glass door at the rear of the building and then breaking the padlock on the inside of the back door. Two or three parties claim to have seen a light in the drug store along between one and two o’clock at night and it is thought the theft was committed about that time. Up to this time no clue has been found whereby the guilty parties can be located. Five robberies have been committed in Caddo within the past twelve months, to begin with the robbery of the tailor shop of Tom Odil about a year ago, then the robbery of the Bass Co. , of the Ben Siegel Store, of Smith, Moore, Williams Co., and this robbery of Monday night. In all these cases between $2,000 and $2,500 worth of stuff was stolen, and in not one single instance has a clue been found whereby the guilty party can be run down. The thief who has been making these raids is no novice, but is an old and experienced hand at the business and he is evidently making it pay him pretty well. Herald believes that when the man is found who committed the Dodd robbery that the man who is guilty of all the other robberies mentioned will also be captured, for we believe that it is the same party who is guilty of all of these crimes. There is a striking similarity in the methods employed in each case.
