Seek Ohio Horse Thieves
Summit County Officers Trail Robbers toward Cleveland
Akron, Ohio, February 5. Belief that an organized gang of horse thieves is operating in Summit County was strengthened today by the report that two horses had been stolen from Akron Stables last night. Everett R. Warns and Mrs. Anna Munson are the losers.
Reports from the country near here tell of the flight of the thieves. A buggy, stolen from G. Friesh near Wyoga Lake broke down and another was taken from the barn of Dr. Adams of Northfield. Deputy Sheriff Thomas and County Detective Bricker left here today in automobiles in search of the thieves. It is thought the men with the stolen horses headed for Cleveland.
