Roggen Elevator Safe Robbery Investigated
Sheriff’s officers Thursday investigated a safe robbery at the Farmers Grain and Bean Association elevator at Roggen. The safecrackers got $34 in cash.
A similar safe job, but unsuccessful, was done in Denver Thursday night, Sheriff William C. Tegtman was informed.
Deputies Harry Mills and Robert Patterson reported that the Roggen building had been entered by breaking a south window. The office window was then broken, and welding equipment moved to the safe to cut it open.
