Daylight Robbery at Emerson Home

     A very bold robbery occurred Tuesday morning at 10:30 at the F. P. Emerson home, 303 E. Third street.  A young man opened up the front door and walked upstairs and stole a new navy blue suit and a brown overcoat valued at $100.  A pocketbook containing a sum of money was in the coat pocket.  The clothing was the property of Raymond Emerson.
     Mrs. Emerson was at home at the time of the robbery, but did not pay much attention to the man, thinking it was one of the family.  When, he walked out she noticed he was a stranger and had the clothing on his arm.  She immediately called the police, and her son home from work.  No trace of the man could be found.  Mr. Emerson offers a reward of $35 for any information leading to the arrest of the perpetrator and return of the clothing.
     The man was dressed in a brown suit and wore a soft felt hat.

Charles Dodds And Two Companions Said To Be Members of Active Gang.

     Charles L. Dodds, 19 years of age, 319 North St. Peter street, has been arrested again.  This time he is charged with grand larceny, receiving stolen goods and stealing an automobile.  Two companions, Paul Null, 510 East Madison street, and Boyd Matson, 715 North Eddy street, were also taken into custody and are being held on similar charges.
     According to the police, the three youths are wanted by the Wabash, Ind., authorities for the theft of an automobile from Joseph Renner, a shoe dealer at that city.  It is said the boys made the trip to Wabash in a Buick touring car, stolen from F. M. Hollister, of this city.  Upon arriving at Wabash, they placed the Hollister car in a garage for repairs and stole the Renner car, also a Buick, it is said.  Then they drove back to South Bend and abandoned the Wabash machine in the northeast section of the city.  A woman who saw the youths leave the car recognized Dodds and immediately informed the police department, according to Chief Kline.
     The three youths are said to be members of a gang of young robbers who have been successful in securing large quantities of automobile tires, batteries and accessories.
     At the present time Dodds is under indictment in the St. Joseph circuit court on charges of grand larceny and receiving stolen goods.
