Pickpockets Were Busy
GANG CAME UP FROM TOLEDO THIS MORNING
Touched Up the Excursionists From That City—One Man Reported Loss of $35
A large number of Toledo people came up on the morning train on the Ann Arbor road to attend the football game today and evidently thinking they would miss some of the pleasures to be had in that metropolitan burg, brought along a gang of pickpockets to relieve some of the tedium of the hours prior to the game. Or perhaps they thought that Ann Arborites needed something of that sort to liven matters up a bit.
At any rate the light fingered gentlemen carne along and as the crowd were leaving the train here proceeded to get busy. Several persons were relieved of their pocketbooks, but the sums were mostly small, the largest amount reported being the loss by one gentleman of $35 in money and some street car tickets.
Sheriff Gauntlett was notified early in the forenoon and took immediate steps to protect, as far as possible, the crowd here, but it was a difficult proposition, as none of the parties robbed could give a description of the thieves.
Later several losses were reported by persons who mingled in the crowds at the hotels. One gentleman, Mr. Ferris of Detroit, reported the loss of a very valuable stick pin.
