Jack Leath Suspected of Trying to Entice Passengers with Liquor, 1918

“Alleged Liquor Seller Is Arrested Here,” from the Hickory Daily Record, January 1, 1918

Jack Leath, who was chased by Chief Lentz and Sergeant Sigmon last August with a couple of cases of liquor, was picked up Monday evening as he alighted from westbound passenger train No. 21. 

When Leach and a partner were seen with the booze, they were preparing to furnish excitement for those colored people who were on an excursion train for Chester. The game was queered and Leach left town. He will be given a hearing this afternoon.
