In 1878 the Missouri Pacific Railroad had been suffering theft from it's train cars by employees and others. Several silver bullion bars were stolen and a Joseph Toothman and a John Comby were arrested for the theft of those bars. Does anyone know what came of their trial? The were held in jail in Sedalia that much I know, but did they go to prison or were they found not guilty?
