1902: Safe Blowers in Two Post Offices

Middletown, Conn., March 24.–Burglars last night blew open safes in the postoffices at Gildersleeve and Portland. At the former place they got $20 in change and about $100 worth of stamps. At Portland the noise of the explosion aroused people, and the robbers had to flee.

From the Pittston Gazette (Pittston, Pa.), March 24, 1902.
