A Big Heist

April 19, 1961, Oshkosh Daily Northwestern
Larceny appears to rear its ugly head, this day in 1961, just a few blocks from my childhood home.  And, based on the following article, the loot was recovered virtually instantaneously.   Hmmm.
April 19, 1961 Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune
The dates don't add up, as the news articles are dated on a Wednesday and the Wisconsin Rapids article says the loot was recovered two days before on Monday, the 17th.  So when WERE the robberies?  Unless the loot WASN'T at the river bottom with these others, it seems the Northwestern kept the Menasha robberies for a slow news day.
