Warehouse Burglarized

The Gazette
March 5, 1902

W. J. Carr, who conducts a country store near Lockhart, was caught in R. A. Faulkner & Co.’s warehouse at 3 a.m., Monday night. Mr. Culp was on is way after a doctor for his sick babe and seeing a wagon at the warehouse platform rightly concluded that it was being burglarized, so he notified Sheriff Norris who went at once to the warehouse and caught Carr loading his wagon with stolen goods. Carr already had on his wagon four barrels and six sacks of flour and a caddy of tobacco and was bringing out five or six boxes of cigars when the sheriff nabbed him. Carr claimed to be a “kleptomanic” — said he couldn’t help it. At the examining trial Tuesday Carr waived examination in both cases brought against him — burglary and grand larceny — and Justice Goode placed his bond in each case at $300. Carr effected an entrance into warehouse by getting out a peg which held one the sliding doors. — El Dorado Tribune.
