Break in at Hoyt Oil i Valentine night ~ WALNUT GROVE-In going about the regular routine of opening up the Hoyt Oil and Convenience Store on Friday morning, February 15, Dave Hoyt noticed the door to the shop on the north of the building was standing open and a rug that was supposed to be in front of the door in the station was out of place.
