Walker said that a heavy sealed pouch of registered mail was taken from a baggage room at the railroad station in Sterling shortly before midnight of Oct. 8. A postal inspector, a Union Pacific railroad special agent and police participated in investigation of the incident, with result that McConville was arrested Wednesday morning on a Sterling street. Walker attributed to McConville a statement in which McConville said he had lifted the big pouch of mail from a truck in the railroad station and had carried it.... According to Walker, McConville slit the outer and inner pouches, rifled the contents for cash, and forced the remainder into a large suitcase. McConville, Walker said, related that he boarded a train to Denver, with the suitcase, and at Denver rented a drive-it-yourself automobile, in which he drove back thru Sterling to North Platte and then returned thru Sterling to North Platte, and then returned thru Sterling to Denver. En route to Denver the second time, the statement attributed to McConville said, he cached the residue of the mail and pouch in the toilet of a recreation park near Sterling. Walker added that the pouch, with much letter mail and parrels, was recovered, and that he expects recovery of a portion of the considerable amount of cash taken from the registered mail. McConville, a longtime resident of Sterling, has recently been employed in oil field work near Sterling. Walker said he is held for the U. S. marshal, with possible arraignment before a U.
