American Friend, & Marietta Gazette, December 6, 1828

On Wednesday night last the watch-maker's shop of Mr. D. B. Anderson was entered through a back window and forty-two watches, among which were some gold ones, and a quantity of Jewelry were taken therefrom.  The thief or thieves made good their retreat without creating alarm.  In the morning, from the circumstance of a yawl being missing and a pair of oars from the ferry boat, it was concluded the villains had descended the river, and pursuit was immediately made.  We are informed that one man had been overtaken and arrested about twenty miles below this place, by the party who went in pursuit, and that thirty-eight of the watches have been recovered.
