1902 Chicken Thievery

In 1902, thieves believed to be from Washington, D.C. came to Montgomery County to steal goods of the feathered kind:

“Edgar Cashell, near Rockville, Montgomery county, had 100 chickens on Friday of last week. On Saturday morning he found all had been stolen except one. George W. Day, a neighbor, had 25 taken the same night. The thieves are supposed to have been from Washington.”
