Linden
Street


LINDEN STREET runs east from the Delaware River to North 12th Street. Much of Linden Street over the years has been razed to make way for the Ben Franklin Bridge, Rutgers, the toll plaza, and related projects. 

Do you have an Linden Street memory or picture. Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.

PAIR HELD FOR JURY IN THEFT OF LIQUOR

Charged with possession of stolen goods, Leon Grenkwicz, 21, of 1213 Louis street, and George 
Sanders, 22, of 307 Walnut street, Haddonfield, yesterday were held without bail for the grand Jury 
by Police Judge Lewis Liberman.

Charges were placed against them by Detective Benjamin Simon after they had been arrested in Audubon for being drunk and disorderly. Simon said his investigation indicated they were the men who, on September 25, stole a liquor truck belonging to James Thompson, wholesale beverage dealer, from Fourth and Arch streets, where it was parked.

Simon said that he has the sworn statement of Hugh Gaffney, of 3 Albertson avenue, Westmont, and John Whelan, of 831 Linden street, that Grenkwicz tried to sell him some of the stolen liquor, for which Thompson is the sole agent in Camden.

Furthermore, said Simon, he has the evidence of a Merchantville man and his sister, whose names he  did not reveal, that Sanders sold them a case of the same brand.
