"With the arrest of four boys ranging between seven and thirteen years of age, the police have undoubtedly put a stop to the series of petty burglaries which have been going on here during the past week," The Saratogian reports.

The crime wave began last Thursday, April 26, when paint and brushes were stolen from the Ouderkirk & Paine store, while most of the public was distracted by a fire in Gardner's Lane.
