BIRD, WEBB GET
LENGTHY TERMS

Burglars Caught Red-
Handed at Park City
Must Serve 1-20 Years.

Oael Bird and John Webb, who were caught in the act of burglarizing the Welsh, Driscoll and Buck store at Park City at four o'clock on the morning of August 26, pleaded guilty before Judge Ephraim Hanson in the Third District court Tuesday and was sentenced to serve terms of from one to twenty years each in the state prison. The committent was issued immediately.

The youths waived the right to be given hearing, or sentence in Summit county, where the offense occurred. That county is a part of the Third District and the judges here have jurisdiction, so that it was unnecessary for them to sit at the county seat in Coalville.

Bird and Webb have given tips to J. C. Clark, sheriff of Summit county, whereby all loot was recovered from several burglaries perpetrated by them. Dynamite and other explosives are said to have been part of their equipment in the attempted Welsh, Driscoll and Buck burglary.

In addition, they are alleged to have committed burglaries in Midvale, Spanish Fork and Murray, taking hundreds of dollars worth of articles, all of which were recovered.

Webb escaped from the custody of Sheriff Clark, to be later recaptured in Bingham by the Summit County sheriff. Sheriff Clifford Patten cooperated in obtaining recovery of the loot.

Neither Judge Hanson nor A. A. Duncan, assistant district attorney, made known what their recommendations will be to the state board of pardons respecting the length of term.
