ALCONA •tr\ $100 Holdup Loss AtLedyard Cafe A daring armed robbery netted approximately $100 for two unmasked thieves at Ledyard early Sunday morning. The pair entered the Lappe Cafe, owned by Mr and Mrs Louis Lappe, who took possqs- sion of the cafe less than a week before, held the Lappes and sey* eral customers at bay, grabbed all currency and a $5 check frqm ttie cash register, leaped in'thg)^ auto and rolled away in a cioyd of dust. It was the first armed robbery in Kossuth county since the Drive-In theater east of Algona. was held up a year and a half ago. The pair involved in that episode wound up in the peni tentiary a week later. The Lappes had just closed th cafe for the night when there was a knock on the front door. Think ing it might be a customer who wanted a last-minute order Larry Lappe, son of the owners opened the door and was met^by two young men, thought to be about 18, who ordered young Lappe to the back of the cafe. The gunman held Mr and Mrs Louis Lappe, .Mr and Mrs Larry Lappe, Jpe McDonald, LeRoy Richardson, Bob Hamilton and Bud Lloyd and his two small sons, who remained asleep during the incident, at bay while the other rifled the cash register. All silver was left untouched in the cash register. ; Completing their task in a matter of minutes, the pair then dashed outside and got. in their auto which was an older model. It is possible there was a third youth in the vehicle at the' time. A fairly complete description of the two who entered the cafe was obtained by Sheriff Ralph' Undhorst and Deputy Sheriff Don Wood, who were called to .he scene. Bob Hamilton and Larry Lappe •ushed to Hamilton's auto and attempted to trail the holdup men, but had to give up after raveling seven or eight miles to- Luke Linnan Luke Linnan, local attorney has been named General Chairman of the Central Catholic High School Development Fund, this week.
