Greenfield Police are investigating a break alleged to have occurred in the Burnham block on Main street. A cash box, containing $5 in bills and coins, was taken from the offices of the Equitable Life Insurance company, later being found in the men's room further down the corridor. The break was discovered when tenants arrived at 9 a.m., and it was said that the alleged thieves used a key to enter the office, since the doors were not forced. No clues to the identity of the burglars have been found. [Source: The North Adams Transcript, 23 Apr 1936; transc. by aFOFG]
