£135 IN CASH TAKEN
THIEF IN CLUB BARROOM
M3'stery surrounds the disappearance of £135 14/ in cash from a safe in the house bar of the Auckland Commercial Travellers and Warehousemen's Association, 43 High Street, during the week-end.
The loss of the money was discovered this morning by a steward when he found the door of the safe open. The safe had not been opened by force.
Investigations failed to reveal any evidence that the premises had been broken into, and there was no sign of disorder either in the office or in the house bar.
The money could have been stolen after 11 o'clock on Saturday night when the premises were closed. Every night except Saturday a steward is on duty throughout the night. The steward on duty yesterday did not enter the house bar, and it is not known whether the burglary was committed on Saturday night or yesterday.
A window in the lounge was found open. This could be reached by anybody climbing over the roofs of adjoining buildings.
