Safe Blowers Work at M’Kenna Office

(Morning Olympian   February 13, 1915)  

Several packages of registered mail and between $150 and $200 were taken from the post office at McKenna when the safe was shattered with nitroglycerine early yesterday morning.  The work is believed to have been done by experts.

The post office is in the McKenna Lumber company’s store.  The robbery was not discovered until the store was opened for business.  The cracksmen entered by prying the back door open with a crowbar.

Postmaster A. G. Cook notified Post Office Inspector Barclay.  The exact amount of the loss will not be known until the inspector checks the books and supplies.  No stamps were taken.  (Morning Olympian   February 13, 1915)
