The woman, Mrs. Marie Jeanne dJArc Ma'chaiid, was taken from the California Limited, en route to Chicago, by FBI agents yesterday afternoon. .She had $50,000 in currency, a large-part of which the FBI identified as Redfield'c. In Reno, Redfield said he was "shocked and greatly upset" by her arrest. "She is one of the !asl 1 would have suspected," he said |'I would have trusted her 'implicitly." ' ' -. Mrs. Machaud is the sixth person taken into custody, by FBI agents investigating the February 2!) burglary. She was held under $10(1,000 bond. She was arraigned last, night before U.S. Commissioner Paul Per- toil on charges of transport stolen property and currency across slate lines. Safe Is Found ·In Nevada, other FBI, agents pulled from an.abandoned 35-foot, minfshaft near Reno the safe stolen from Redfield's home. Aided by Heno police, the FBI men rocovered the safe in the desolate Hot Springs area,' 10 miles south of Heno. Stripped of valuables, it was found in a curve of the mineshaft on a rocky, sagebrush-covered ridge. The shaft is well concealed from U.S. Highway 395. which passes a mile and a half away. FBI agents and police refuse to say how they discovered the hiding place. When arrested, Mrs. Machaud also had in her brief case jewelry and securities. The FBI wa* checking t h e s e to determine whether they, too, were part of the loftt. She identified herself as an artist and short story writer. The two agents who arrested her boarded the California Limited ot the Santa Fe Railroad at Ashfork, Ariz., 18 miles west of Flagstaff. She left the train with them on its arrival here. The safe had been stolen at noon-time. Investigating, officers said the safe stealcrs unquestionably had inside information. The safe was well hidden, the burglary was timed while - the Redfields were aflunch, and the watch dog was pacified with a ham bone. Crime Reconstructed FBI agents reconstructed the crime like this: Several weeks before the burglary, John Triliegi, 37, Milwaukee hoodlum, met Louis Firpo Gazzigll, 44, a 230-pound ex- prizefighter, here. Late in February they drove to Milwaukee and r'-krd un Andries'Robert Young. 46, ex-convict, and Frank Sor- rcnti, 30, a petty criminal. They were back in Reno two days before the burglary.
