Sheriff Carl Dahlhauser, his deputy, Casey Loss, Constable IF A •Newville answered a call to the city's "jungles" Monday morning, when they were advised that two Characters under suspicion had spent the night had breakfast there with, the traveling hoboes who inhabit the "Jungles." It was said that the pair traveled in a Pontiac car, which didn't seem Officers were expected last night to take the men to Sioux City to answer a charge of theft of the Pontiac, which, It was found, had been tnken from a Buick dealer there recently. Both men have already served time for stealing cars, the state department of justice has advised. to fit socially the means of transportation practiced by the other transients. Car is Bandit-Equipped. On investigation the officers found that the- pair had gun shells in the car, revolvers, other guns, flashlights, brand-new chisels, and punches of the sort used for ibreak- ing into safes. On this showing the two men .were arrested as suspicious characters and locked up till their records could be investigated. The car's gas tank was filled to the. top. There was a new windshield wiper, and in- other ways the car seemed in prime condition for fast travel. -•• •'• Men Have Bad Records. The sheriff called Sioux City and as told there that the car had been registered in the name of a person who said he had never owned a (Pontiac. In the car was found a dealer's used license, and this led the sheriff to believe the car had been stolen. The Sioux City authorities warned the sheriff to look out for the men, who have bad records. Yesterday Information received from the state criminal records department, revealed that the pair •had been sentenced March 27 for robbing a lumberyard in Nebraska. The department didn't know how they happened to be at large. Hall from Sioux City. One of the men gave his name as (Frank Odeas. He has a record of car larceny on two occasions, while his companion, who calls himself Walter Miller, has a record of 'breaking and entering, carrying concealed weapons, and car larceny. It is believed that the pair have also been cracking safes. Both men gave their address as Sioux City. The men went to Jail peacefully Monday morning. Suspicious characters can be held 24 hours-and on holidays, but after that a charge must be filed to hold them longer.
