- 66-year-old Euclide Allard holding a piece of twine and a towel that a burglar used to tie him up in his hotel room. Allard, in town from Massachusetts, was in his room working on race-horse charts when he heard a knock at the door. Upon answering, a “tough looking” man pressed a revolver into Allard’s stomach and demanded to know where he kept his money. The burglar then tied up Allard with twine and took $6950 from Allard’s coat pocket. Allard said that most of the stolen money had been won at the horse races and it appeared that the burglar had seen Allard at the track and followed him back to the hotel.
