Charles Yarroll, of Spokane and other places, paid a visit to Gillette last week, and shortly after the Thanksgiving day fire he left town, which didn’t attract any vast amount of attention. About that time Lew Jenne missed some of the working tools of his profession, among them being a gun, a pair of bracelets of the handcuff type and some other trinkets. No clue as to the whereabouts of the missing articles was obtained until the Sheridan papers printed a story of how two vagrants had robbed a third member of their party, in a box car traveling west on the other side of Sheridan. Yarrol fell in with a pair of buddies of his profession and confided to them how he had fell heir to the trophies he carried. The pair concluded that since he had carried stolen property they had as good a claim to it as he did, and they proceeded to slug their new found friend and appropriate the said property. Yarroll reported the “robbery” and the men were apprehended. At their hearing it was brought out that the articles were originally “lifted” in Gillette and the authorities were notified. Deputy Jenne brought Yarrol to Gillette, and he has admitted his guilt, and when Judge Ilsley visits Gillette he will probably be sent down to the state hotel for the holidays.
