And now back to the news of incident at the Franklin Riders Office in New Flagstaff where an unknown thief committed robbery making away with six packages.
Initial witness statements from a nearby group who had recently emerged from the Bunker Bar described the thief as a short person of considerable height, long cropped hair with a bald head and a wide brimmed hat. Those statements were later said to be unreliable.
However our contact in New Flagstaff managed to discover that the Rider who was there at the time described the man as tall with a fairly large figure and wearing a large brown duster, brown shirt, workman gloves and a large turban gas mask hiding the face. It is said the thief was alone as no accomplice was seen and seemed to be interested only in the heavier packages. The thief told the Rider to turn around and stay on his knees before searching for the heavier packages. The Rider later escaped with an injury to his shoulder from a gun but doctors from the clinic say he will recover.
Anyone who witnessed this crime or perhaps saw any suspicious activity in the area are asked to contact the N.F.P.D. or an appropriate person in authority.
Now in other news, doctors in the area say they are alarmed with the increase in Bunker Bar ladder related injuries...
