St. Petersburg, FL


William F. Liston, 35, Tampa, was bound over to Circuit Court in lieu of $5,000 bond yesterday on a charge of breaking and entering a South Pasadena drive-in [Biff-Burger] from which $431 in cash and checks, was taken August 10.

The action by Peace Justice Edward P. Silk was in addition to the breaking and entering charges filled against Liston and a companion August 14 by Clearwater police, who said the men were caught after trying to break into a drive-in of the same chain in Clearwater.

Liston now is held in lieu of $10,000 bond on the two charges. Andrew Ywanciow, 44, Tampa, arrested with him in Clearwater, was freed of the South Pasadena charge when police of that city said they had no evidence he had participated in the break.

The victimized chain was the Biff-Burger Co. [later renamed to the National Biff-Burger System], in the South Pasadena office of which the safe's hinges were knocked off with an ax. Clearwater police charge Liston and Ywanclow tried unsuccessfully to pry open the safe of the Clearwater Biff-Burger and were caught as they left the building.
