Camden Courier-Post – August 16, 1933

Several hundred persons, attracted by the loud ringing of a burglar alarm at the King jewelry store, 4 Broadway, watched Patrolman John V. Wilkie last night as he climbed over the roof of the building and across a narrow ledge to an open second story window to investigate the alarm.

Failing to find anyone, Wilkie climbed back, over the ledge to the roof after finding himself locked in the building.

A score of police detectives and motorcycle patrolmen answered the alarm. William Schoeffling, manager of the jewelry concern, was notified of the “false alarm.”
