dickering back and forth trying to
reach some agreement since the
first of July.
The first plan, offered by the
county was that the City of Port
St. Joe should contribute $5,000.00,
which it spends each year for mos-
quito control, into a county-wide
fund for that purpose to take more
advantage of State control match-
ing funds. The City of Wewahitchka
had agreed to go to $1,500.00 on the
Three Victims Home
During Time of
Thursday of last week, City Po-
lice broke up a string of burglaries
by two youths that had resulted in
seven Port "St. Joe homes being
Two youths from Canton, Ohio,
who must remain nameless since
they were under 18 years of age,
were arrested by Chief of Police
'Buck Griffin on Reid Avenue on a
charge of suspicion of breaking
and entering. Intense questioning
of the two suspects brought a con-
tession from one of the youths.
The boys were riding in a 1954
Mercury which one of the boys had
stolen in Charleston, West Virginia
on July 11.
No complaint of burglary had
been entered to the local police
with the exception of one by James
Harrison which was entered Mon-
!day of last week. Chief Griffin sta-
ted that the :Department had the
two boys under survpence since
they were'-.i-Tangeri. anai spending
heavily about town. When the sec-
cid complaint came from John
Ford, Jr., on Thursday morning of
$86.00 missing from his home, Po-
lice .Chief Griffin made the arrest.
Confessions by one of the boys
revealed that they had spent a
busy six days in Port tSt. Joe since
they had arrived in town on Fri-
day prior to their arrest last Thurs-
day afternoon. During this time
seven homes were entered with a
total take of $186.00 in money and
numerous items of jewelry, cloth-
ing and miscellaneous items. Many
of the victims were told by the
police that they had been burglar-
