December 1969

• Four armed robbers were captured by the New Mexico State Police and Quay County Sheriffs office for robbing the Cedar Hill Grocery store 16 miles east of Tucumcari.

The men pulled a razor on store owner Charlie Murrary and tied him to a bed in the back of the store. The four men took the cash from the register, two shotguns, two hand guns, silverware and stole Murrary’s car.

They were spotted near the Caprock, where state police began to chase the stolen vehicle. The chase exceeded 100 miles per hour at times, but the four men were captured at a road block two miles north of Broadview that was set up by the state police out of Clovis.

The four suspects were taken to the Quay County jail to await arraignment.
