Vnuck, Rolf (Arson - APR 1917)

(Republican & Press)

Rolf Vnuck, charged with attempt to burn the Neillsville Armory, had a further hearing Saturday before Court Commissioner Campman. Private Ed Zachernitz, who was subpoenaed from Two Harbors, Minn., identified Vnuck as the man he had found prowling about the Armory one night about one o’clock. The Deputy State Fire Warden had tests made with the candles found in Vnuck’s possession and the remains of the candle found in the box of kindling and they seemed to be of exactly the same material.

The evidence seemed to be sufficient to hold the defendant for trial and he was therefore bound over to circuit court, bail being fixed at $5000, which at this writing has not been secured.
