Parts of the door to the safe lie on the floor along with broken plaster and items from the safe discarded by the thieves.

Professional Burglars Rob Safeway Of $7,740 in Cash Early Sunday Sunday's theft of $7740 from the Orem Safeway store was "an excellent job" by professional profes-sional safecrackers, according to special investigators from the Orem Police Department. Federal Bureau of Investigation Investiga-tion agents have entered the case, and in addition to the FBI assistance is being given by police departments of Provo City and American Fork and the Utah County Sheriff's of fice. Method used to crack the suppo?edly burglar-proof safe was the "punch and drill" means. It was necessary to drill through steel 1 9-16 inches thick. This is the first time a "punch job" has been committed in Orem, Police Chief Reed Burgener said. The thieves, at least two and probably more, entered the building by using 's bar to soring the lock on the alumin um front door. They had earner ear-ner tried to enter the largo rear door but had been unable to open it. They then opened the rear door from the inside by cutting cut-ting the lock: Through thfa door they brought in their safecracking equipment. Chief Burgener noted that this burglary probably would not have .sucneedert ,if the Safeway store had been equip ped with automatic burglar alarms; unless, he added "the thieves had known how to disconnect dis-connect the alarm without eptW it off." It is interesting to note in this connection, that Orem Po-l'ce Po-l'ce answered two burglar alarm calls that same weekend. week-end. One occurred at 3:21 p. m. Sunday afternoon from the Albertson's store. Police were at the scene within four minutes min-utes from the time the alarm Vol. 31 No. 37 Water Board Takes Tour Of Layton Plant Property-owners who wish to join the proposed special improvement district for street improvements, curb and gutter or sidewalks should contact the city manager to request that their area be included, council-men council-men pointed out at Monday'? regular city council meeting. The proposed improvement district wa? discussed together with several . other items of business. .. . The Orem Metropolitan Water . District officials, accompanied, ac-companied, by Representatives of cities in north Utah County, spent Tuesday touring , the Layton culinary water treatment treat-ment plant, according to John Gillman, chairman of a group investigating feasibility of building a single treatment plant to serve the needs of north Utah County. . The Layton plant is part of the Weber Basin Conservancy District. Action seeking improvement of city culinary systems has been prompted by. recent letters let-ters from the Federal. Housing Administration, warning that unless city water systems are certified Class A, the FHA will discontinue loans. American Fork, at present, is the only city which has received re-ceived accreditation, Orem of ficials-said. A suggestion was made by Mayor Melbourne D. Wallace recommending that an investi gation be made by Earl Wen green and Harley Gillman, councilmen in charge of parks and roads, respectively, into the possibility of the disposal of city garbage in a spot north and' south of the Marina Park, to form a perimeter road slong the shore of the lake and im proving the park harbor. The council authorized the city manager to accept the C. L. Lee Rock Products bid of 50 cents per cubic yard for the hauling of slag to designa ted areas. Tag - 500 Is Coming Watch This Paper For Big Event was received at the station. Earlier, 9:55 a. m. Saturday an alarm was received from Three-Way Builders Supply, a few miles from the station", and police officers were there also within four minutes. In both cases the alarms were set off by a worker in the stores and police records note both as "false alarms." Brak Into Safs Once inside the Safeway building, the thieves were relatively safe from detection during the two or three hours it took to break open the safe. They had marked the front of the safe in deciding exactly whee to drill, and scored a direct hit on the pin. Once the safe was opened, they cleaned out the front section sec-tion of cash and checks and used an acetylene torch to open a rear section. They took $7,740 in cash leaving about $12,000 in check' which had been stamped with Safeway's bank stamp and thus were not negotiable. They alFo left money orders and cthpr i'ems from the safe. The job was well-cased and was probably the biggest job ever committed in Orem, police po-lice said. Orem police records have only one other unsolved safecracking safe-cracking which has occurred in this area. Six months a?o burglars were apparently frightened away while attempting attemp-ting to. burglarize U. S. Rock Wool Sales Co. Nothing of value was taken in this attempt. at-tempt. - Three men are still serving time in prison for safe jobs committed in Orem. Two of these were caught in the act in an attempt to burglarize burg-larize the same Safeway store just a year ago.
