June 22-28, 1928
If officers Clark, Dillon, Vernon (click here for photo) and Barnes of the Leaksville police force had been any busier last Saturday night in Leaksville, they wouldn't have had anywhere to put their arrestees. The officers arrested 15 people on such charges as public drunkenness, possession of liquor, operating cars under the influence and transporting liquor. They also caught a sport model Dodge car with 15 gallons of liquor. They arrested one of the two men in it but the second escaped.
The small jail at Spray was filled to overflowing with all the arrests. But the jail population declined sharply on Sunday as several of the prisoners had bail posted for them.
