THIEF CAUGHT IN APLEY

Alleged Student Detained in Connection With Dormitory Robberies.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

A thief caught in the rooms of H. S. Sturgis '15 and P. H. Sherwood '15 in Apley court yesterday afternoon is evidently the one responsible for most of the recent robberies which have been committed in Dana Chambers, Thayer, Holworthy, Westmorly, Craigie, and Apthorp House. Sturgis discovered the man in his room upon his return from lunch. The intruder attempted to simulate a student, but betrayed himself, and Sturgis detained the thief while he called the police from the telephone in his room. The man arrested gave a fictitious name at the police station, claiming to be a student, but refusing to tell the name of his college.

Jewelry valued at several hundred dollars, gathered from the rooms in Apley Court, was found wrapped up in a towel lying in a closet of Sturgis' room where the burglar had thrown it when he was trapped. The prisoner is in the Cambridge police station charged with seven counts of larceny, which involve thefts amounting to over $800.
