From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, February 1952.
The long arm of the law reached out through a Crescent City window and came up with two burglars. The arm was that of Police Chief Viggo Hoyer. The window was to the rear of the Pump Room, a taproom which had been burglarized either before or after noon on Tuesday.
It was 4 p.m. the same day. Proprietor Howard Renner was explaining how the burglars entered. He raised the window, just as he had done before his noonday trip to the bank. Hoyer leaned out just in time to catch the two thieves, ages 11 and 12 respectively.
