1906 Crime Report

From 1906 Kittson County Enterprise:
By pumping chloroform thru the keyhole of the front door with a rubber pump, burglars placed all seven of the members of the household of R. G. Palmer under the influence of the drug. They then entered and ransacked the house, securing $100 in cash, and jewelry and silverware in the amount of $500. None of the persons in the house knew what had happened until one of them revived toward morning and found the others in a stupor. All will recover. Mr. Palmer is a farmer living near St. Vincent.
I wonder if they ever found the burglers?!
