Girl Charged with Robbing Two Boston Jewelry Firms Held in Heavy Bail—Stolen Property Recovered
Boston, Mass., -Aug. 26.—Sarah V. Dowling, alias Vera Darling, the young woman who was arrested twice recently in connection with the disappearance of diamond jewelry from the stores of Shreve, Crump & Low Co. and Bigelow, Kennard & Co., was arranged Aug. 22 in the municipal court, where Judge Wentworth held her in $2,000 bonds on the Bigelow, Kennard & Co. charge, as she had been held previously on the Shreve, Crump & Low Co. charge, for the Grand Jury.
She was unable to furnish bail and was taken to the Charles St. jail. The ring stolen from Bigelow, Kennard & Co., which was valued at upward of $1,000, has been restored to the firm. It was in the possession of Max Levine, a second-hand dealer at 112 Merrimac St., and is said to have secured the $500 cash bail on which the woman was released after her first arrest which was made on the charge preferred by Shreve, Crump & Low Co., where two pendants were missing after her visit one valued at $325 and the other at $350. Both were recovered subsequently where they had been pawned.
