- Mrs. Elizabeth Klomp, in Municipal Court for stealing three garments with a total value of $10.45 on Dollar Day. Ironically, at the time she stole the clothes, Mrs. Klomp had $27,009 in her purse, money she had withdrawn from the bank to make a real estate investment. In court, Mrs. Klomp pled guilty and asked for probation. She said she hadn’t meant to steal the clothes; she just got confused in the bustle of the sale. A month later, Mrs. Klomp was fined $100 and sentenced to five days in City Jail.
