Oquawka Tavern Patrons Robbed Henderson County authorities today were still seeking two and possibly three men who held up patrons of the Blue Goose Tavern in Oquawka early Sunday morning. Reports of the amount taken range up to $4,000 and higher. Sheriff Vincent Carlson said this morning two men entered the tavern about 2:45 a.m. wearing masks. One man held a shotgun and the other brandished a nickel-plated derringer. The two ordered the seven patrons in the tavern and the bartender to face the wall, hands above their heads. Then the bandits directed one person at a time to walk over to a table and empty pockets and billfolds, then return to the wall. Head South Scooping up the money, the two men hopped in a car, make and model unknown, and headed south out of town, according to reports given Carlson. A third individual was said to be driving the getaway vehicle. No money was taken from the tavern itself, only from the individuals, Carlson said. "At least that's the information the victims gave me." Earlier reports said the robbers also ransacked the cash register. The victims also reported at first the two holdup men were wearing Halloween masks. After further questioning, Carlson said he believes they were not wearing the masks, but some other kind of disguise. "A considerable amount of money was involved, but I'm not sure exactly how much," he said. Some reports had the total amount taken at $4,000 or higher, and one individual was said to have lost $2,100. But Carlson said he could make no comment on that as of now. READ THE WANT ADS!
