ROBBERY PROBED AT NORTHWOOD Car Used by Filling Station Bandits Stolen From Albert Lea. NORTHWOOD, May 7,--The identity of the two armed bandits who robbed the Watts service station on South Tenth street remains hidden, though the fact had been determined that the car driven by them is one stolen from the streets of Albert Lea earlier that same night and found a few hours later parked about three blocks from the place where it was taken. The two men who held up T. H. Watts, owner of the station, drove up to the station about 10:30 o'clock Friday night and stopped close, to the door of the building. One man got out and meeting Watts as they . came out to see what they wanted, poked a gun at him and said "Get nside." Entering the building .he told Watts to turn over his cash, getting about $35. He then ordered Watts into the washroom and tried to lock the door to imprison him. Watts told him he had no key on which the robber said "some of you guys ought to be shot," stepped out of the building and into the car where his confederate was waiting. They were soon on'their way and out of town before any warning could be given. The owner of the car was in Northwood Saturday but could give no assistance in naming the robbers. The one who got out and obtained the cash was said by Watts to be about 30 years of age. ] m .1,4.':-= $ ' ' '"!: : intoxicated.
