Vandals Break into Yelm Homes, Destroy Property
Nisqually Valley News January 7, 1943
The home of Miss Dolly Burps was entered one night this week and the furnishings thrown about and some of them demolished. Entrance was made through a side window.
The home formerly occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Dan Carew was alo entered and the contents stolen down to the linoleum on the floor. The door, torn loose in the process was left off its hinges.
This wave of vandalism sweeping the community is a disgrace to the town and the people. Anyone caught is this kind of activity will be given the limits in penalty.
