5. Reporting Officer/Assignment: DET. J.D. CHURCH

(79)

A"Roy" the owner of Electric Motor Repair next door to my business bought a HUGE warehouse on the other side of his business from "Glasscock," who ownes my property.  Roy went to school with Mr. Glasscock and knew him well.  After Glasscock died Roy bought Mayberry Ice cream from Glasscock Jr.  Mayberry is in front of Roys business.  Roy spoke of buying the property Lyles is on.  At my present monthly rent payment it would be just as cheap of payments to buy the property.

 

Roy had spoken to Glasscock and Tom Routh about the Lyles property (location).  If Roy bought my property my rent would go up.  After Roy bought the Mayberry property he doubled the rent.  The lady went a head and retired, closing Mayberry down.
