I K MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, AUGUST 8 1935 FIVE IOWA BUREAU PRESSES SEARCH FOR ACKLEY BANK BANDITS i( CLEWS TO WORK ON ARE MEAGER Acting Chief States Same Gang May Have Pulled 5 Lootings. Although meager clews are available for officers to work on, it was learned in several sections that the state bureau of investigation Wednesday was pressing the search for bandits who robbed tue Ackley State bank. That the gang might be the same which roobea four other North Iowa banks was also suggested. Agent Burke of the state bureau of invstigation Wednesday conferred with Mitchell county officers, checking through records of automobiles, since it was reported that a Mitchell county car had been used by the bandits at Ackley. No thefts of autos or license plates had been reported recently from Mitchell county, however. Investigates at Ackley. After contending with Mitchell county officers, Agent Burke went to ACKley to investigate further the various angles of the robbery there. Whether or not this might indicate that the bandits somehow got hold of plates purchased through normal channels or were actually residents of Mitchell county, officials did not disclose. Meanwhile, Glen L. Schmidt, acting chief of the state bureau of investigation, announced at Des Moines that indications led him to believe the same three men have robbed the banks in North Iowa. Methods used in approaching the banks, the conduct of the robber; inside the cages while a companion waited in an automobile outside and the escapes were apparently similar, Schmidt said. Descriptions Somewhat Similar. Descriptions of the robbers tally in some instances, he said. Bank's which have been robbed and included in his theoretical analysis included those at Buffalo Center, Rockford, Elma, Monona and Ackley. That the bandit gang spends the loot quickly and strikes again caused officers to wonder whether they would hit again in North Iowa soon. At Ackley Wednesday, the day following the taking of .$2,000 there, annual Sauerkraut day was celebrated. A crowd estimated at between 2,000 and 2,500 was present at night. The chief topic of conversation was the bank robbery.
