Bestowing confidence in a woman while he was in an intoxicated condition led to the arrest of George Parker at Fourth and Douglas streets by police detectives on the charge of burglarizing the South Sioux City postoffice the morning of April 11. Deal stamps valued at $400 were taken. The woman "peached" when she was confronted by detectives in order to save herself. She told them Parker had the "swag" hidden in the debris of the Lindholm building at Fifth and Douglas streets. Much of the booty, which was in stamps, was recovered.
