Pages of History: Well-dressed customer was up to no good

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, November 1960.

They’re getting smarter. Monday, a well-dressed, neat-appearing man approached a clerk at a local store and politely told her he would like a refund on a saw he had just purchased. The clerk willingly complied with the request.

When she went to place the saw back in its proper place she discovered it had just been taken from the shelf. It had never been paid for and had never left the store. Police are still looking for the man on a petty theft charge.
