Family dog hides money bag, 1950

Posted on November 20, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

C.H. Worthington had his dog, Tuffy, re-enact his “junior-size Brinks job” that the pooch pulled on a Sunday night in April 1950, while the family was at church. Tuffy, their year-old cocker spaniel, pulled a bag containing $220 in cash and checks out of a china closet and hid it near the fireplace. Worthington reported the “theft” to police, but he then discovered the bag where Tuffy had stashed it. Herald-Leader Archive Photo
