Algona police investigate calls and thefts The Algona police department has received a number of complaints in the last several weeks about unidentified telephone calls to local women by a man who breathes heavily and then hangs up. The police also learned recently that someone has been stealing women's undergarments from clothes lines and homes. They have not, however, discovered any visible signs of entry into the homes, and they have no clues as to the identity of the person or persons involved in the calls and thefts. Police Chief Al Boekelman , .said that'if the persons arc to be apprehended, cooperation will be needed from the neighbors who might happen to see someone taking clothes from another, person's home. Such thefts usually have occurred while the housewives and family were not at home. Boeklman noted that similar incidents have occurred sporadically; for the last two to three-years.
