Tuesday 14 June 1932, The Sydney Morning Herald

ARMIDALE, Monday.

About 1000lb of sugar was stolen from Wright, Heaton, and Company’s store at the week-end. The burglar forced a side door and used a lorry or car to take the sugar away. This is the second time the store has been burgled in three weeks, and the fourth time in three years. Last week a man was sentenced to 23 months’ imprisonment for stealing from the store.

[Aside: I published this photograph of part of the old store a couple of years ago – GS].
