Attempted Break At Club; License Plates, Bike Stolen

There seems to be no letup in breaks in Norwood. On the heels of the Vega Baking Company Garage theft, came a break into Norwood Automobile Company showroom on Wednesday night between the hours of 10.30 and 11:30. Carl Johnson reported the break to Norwood police at half after midnight.

Entrance was gained by breaking a window in the rear of the building. A 1938 Packard sedan was stolen. No number plates were on the car and Mr. Johnson reported no plates missing. Police flashed a description of the machine on the teletype.

The next morning James Foley reported that someone had made an unsuccessful attempt to break into the Town Square Athletic Club on Central Street. Early in the afternoon, Moses Hanscomb of 192 Pleasant Street reported a number plate stolen from his car during the night. The car was parked in front of his house.

Fred Johnson of Pond Street, Westwood, had his bike stolen from the police garage on the same evening (Wednesday) while he was at the movies.
