1956: A pair of Clovis teens had confessed to robbing the juke box at Juarez Café.
One boy told Chief of Police Nelson Worley that he and his partner had split $13 they received from the theft.
The second suspect initially denied his involvement until Worley said he knew they'd split $13. “(The suspect) became vexed and said that it was only $6.60 - that each had gotten $3.30 out of the burglary,” the Clovis News-Journal reported.
Both boys were turned over to county authorities for prosecution.
