AIASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE THURSDAY, MARCH 16, 1939 14 YEAR OLD "GUNMAN" IS SENTENCED AT CRESCO ARREST YOUTH AFTER HOLDUP Boy From Vicinity of Minneapolis in Confession to Crime CRESCO--Stanley McClelland, 14, o£ Minneapolis, was sentenced by Judge T. H. Goheen ot Calmar, in district court at Cresco Wednesday, to an indefinite term in the boys reformatory at Eldora for the crime of assault with .intent to inflict bodily injury. McClelland left home with his mother's car and his father's .22 calibre revolver and five cents in his pocket. His parents live on a farm north of of Minneapolis. Reaching Cresco early Sunday morning, the boy drove up to the Coryell service station and ordered a tire and tube which was put on by the attendant, Greg Adams, who refused to charge it as the boy requested. McClelland said he had a grandfather living on a farm between Cresco and Decorah and wanted to get out there. A couple of young men by the names of Reynolds and Kraft, who happened to be at the service sta- 'tion at the time, offered to take the boy out in their car. When out of Cresco about a mile, the boy covered them with his revolver and made them drive on while he walked back to Cresco for his own car which failed to start. Attendant Adams told the boy to leave the car alone, and then McClelland pulled his gun again and ordered Adams to crank his car which was done, and the boy drove off toward Decorah where the officers were notified. They soon discovered the boy and notified Sheriff Percy Haven of Cresco who requested them to bring young McClelland to Cresco. Here the boy signed a confession to the holdup.
