STRABANE MORNING POST:

March 17, 1829

ROBBERY

On the morning of Saturday last, the Shop of MR. ARTHUR BLAIR, of this town, was broken into, by some persons, who carried off Bank Notes to a considerable amount, also some tea, soap, &c. Although a diligent search was made immediately after the robbery, no trace of the depredators could be found.

A large reward has been offered for the apprehension of the robbers, which we hope, will be the means of bringing them to justice
