Man is Caught After Wild Chase
Last Tuesday afternoon the tranquility of our peaceful village was rudely interrupted after a fashion of the olden wild west days when a man and a woman in a Chevrolet coupe tired to evade the law in a daring attempt to escape from having their car searched.
The car came into Huddleston’s Garage Monday afternoon about three o’clock to have a burned out bearing repaired and Tuesday afternoon after the repairs had been made and (they) were having the gas tank filled, A. E. Boydston, (came) armed with a search warrant, suspecting that liquor was being transported. The man then started off at a rapid pace and Mr. Boydston shot over the car three times in an effort to stop him. As the car rounded the corner of Buffalo Street in the business section of town to go south on the highway, the left front casing of the car blew out, but the man kept on going, after much difficulty in turning the corner, going down a by-road between the highway and several barns on the east side. Mr. Boydston at once commandeered a car and started in pursuit. The car turned off the highway near the residence of Mrs. C. A. Bilbo and they were engaged in taking the whisky from the car when sighted by their pursuers. Their car was then blocked on its return to the highway. Their car was found to contain three five-gallon kegs of whiskey, said to have been of high grade.
The occupants of the car gave their names as a Mr. and Mrs. Brummett and their home in Wewoka. They were later turned over to Federal authorities at Durant for prosecution.
