   Appleton Post-Crescent (Newspaper) - May 30, 1959, Appleton, Wisconsin                               APPLETON POST CRESCENT VOLLNo.79 SAHMQAY, MAY H Hunt Former Castro Soldier in Robbery Identified by Woman as Assailant City Police sought a former soldier in the Castro rebel army today for questioning in the multimillion Cuban pesos robbery of an American woman here. The Cuban, Alfonso Arnoldo Acosta Meza, slipped through a police network thrown up on all major highways, airports and exit points from Mexico. Sources said Acosta Meza, a{ pilot, may have flown to Cu- ba in a private plane. Mrs. Marilyn Kay Thai, Mi- ami Beach Fla., identified Acosta Meza as one of three Cubans who robbed Jier of Cuban pesos "Thursday night on a street. Just before the holdup po- lice got an anonymous tip about operations of an inter- national ring of smugglers. Black Market Deal Police said the money had been, brought to Mexico for black market conversion at a rate of 36 cents a peso, or a{ total of Although! the pesos's purchasing power in Cuba is pegged at the of- ficial rate of it is almost Impossible to get pesos con- verted in Cuba. Former dictator Fulgencio Batista and his followers were accused of sending millions of pesos abroad just before col- lapse of his regime Jan. 1. The government of Prime Minister Fidel Castro has im- posed checks on converting of all pesos from abroad to trace their source. Sources said smuggling of pesos still could be profitable if they were bought cheaply on the black market and suc- cessfully slipped into Cuban business channels. Twenty persons, including Mrs. Thai and at least four other North Americans, are being hpld for questioning. Join Investigation Police from the United Door Slam Triggers Search for Burglars Loot From DaU General Store Found in Car; Hunt Continues Waupaca A car door slamming early this morn- ing triggered a dragnet op- erationbypojlice and sheriff's men, discovery of a Dale store burglary and the possible' thwarting of a burglary of a supermarket. Mrs. David Conrad, at Washington and Badger streets, heard the door slam about 2 a.m. today and? when she saw three men prowling behind the post- office she called police. Pa- trolman Harley Dunbar saw the men cross Washington street to the Glen's super- market and called out Po- lice Chief Fred Rastnussen and Sheriff Ray Abraham- son and all available squads. Found Drewi Shoes Police impounded a 1957 black and white sedan with Virginia license plates. In the glove compartment was in a leather pouch, along with bills of sale from. Rieekmann Brothers Gen- eral store in Dale. In the trunk wrapped in a fur coat, were two big game rifles, an automatic shot gun and an automatic rifle. Reickmanns lear n e d of the burglary from Waupaca authorities. The burglars gained entrance into the store by throwing a rock through the rear window. Also found in the car were three pair of dress shoes. Police speculate the burglars either are wearing tennis shoes or are barefoot- ed. A dragnet was thrown about the city, blocking all exits and extensive search of the city was made. When no suspi clous characters were found, police figured the burglars were hiding in the wooded areas about the city. However, at 8 a m. today the Soo line reported that a Ha tion Offers Tribute to Dead InSBigWars and Parados Mark Memorial Day By the Associated Press Prayer and play mark this ninety-first annual obser- vance of Memorial day as the nation pays homage to its dead of five major wars, and the beach and summer resort business gels underway.
