  1. Hi Mike, I was wondering if you could help me. I know you have access to old cecil whig papers. But back in August 1979 the cecilton national bank was robbed by the guy who used to own the fish market in north east. He was in his 80s or something at that time. I was a deputy with the sheriffs office then and I caught him in warwick after a short chase. I have been trying to find that article for some time so I could show my grand children. I hope you could help me. If you are able, I will give you my home address and maybe you could mail it to me. I hope you can.
    Thank you Charlie Roach

    • Charlie I think I can find that for you next week. Is that the one where Harry Lihtner (not sure about spelling) the used car dealer and special deputy started chasing him until the patrols got down that way? I’ll look into it for you.

  2. Really enjoy your historic post. Miss not being in class. Have a great holiday

  3. Thanks Mike
