 Break-in at Oscar Ogden home gets a big haul for thieves sometime during the night Thursday. Among the things taken were a roto-tiller, lawn mower, chest of drawers, antique rocker, chairs, pillowcases, blankets, quilts, and window fans. Sheriff Howard Long said he believed they moved on to the Tandy farm where their attention focused on tools, particularly drills, impact wrench, saws, mall wrenches and numerous other small equipment. He also believes the same thieves tried to take a battery off a tractor at the Eldred Fisher farm. Sheriff Long has a key clue that he believes will solve the case.
