3 MASKED HOLDUP MEN LINE 4 AGAINST WALL, GET $6 LOOT FROM CAFE
The holdup men, shabbily dressed directed Wojciechowski, his wife, their daughter, Stella, and Mrs. Mary Miller, of Westville, to turn their faces to the wall. Cowing the four with revolvers, one of the trio rifled the proprietor's pockets; then all three fled in an automobile they had left parked in front of the cafe.
Camden Detective Sergeant Rox Saponare said each of the four victims expressed belief the bandits could be identified.
