January 11th in Seal Beach History

On this date in 1940, The Santa Ana Register reported that a yellow taxi cab had been stolen from in front Don May’s cafe on the coast highway between Seal Beach and Sunset Beach. Huntington Beach police recovered the abandoned cab a short time later in the Wintersburg after a California highway patrol car “slid through the mud of a dirt road and landed in a ditch while en route to the scene of the abandonment.”

At this date, the culprit still remains at large.
