1952: Three Roosevelt County businesses had been hit by burglars, but the only significant loss was $40 from a Portales farm supply store’s cash drawer, soft drink and candy dispensers.
An Elida service station reported two old automobile batteries were missing, but new batteries were left behind. The service station was also missing a gallon of milk.
A Roosevelt County Sheriff’s deputy said it wasn’t clear if the three burglaries were related.
