Did Willie and Joe Price Burglarize Dr. Nicholson's Home? 1917

“No Developments in Burglary Case,” from the Feb. 1, 1917 issue of the Hickory Daily Record

Formal hearing of Willie and Joe Price, who were held in police station, probably will be held tomorrow afternoon, but today there were no new developments in the burglarizing of Dr. Nicholson’s home Tuesday night. The bloodhounds were carried back to Asheville yesterday afternoon.

Hickory was impressed with the dogs and they were observed by hundreds, many going to the police station to see them. They are ugly rascals and look bad enough for any purpose.

Both boys insist that they are innocent and unless there is more proof than that produced by the bloodhounds, the lads probably will be released.
