Raiders Get Load Of Nelson Whisky
65 Gallons Taken; 2 Men Captured, Removed To Frankfort
Lawrenceburg , Ky., Jan. 18 1934----Sixty-five gallons of Nelson county moonshine whisky was poured into the sewer at the courthouse this morning shortly after seven o'clock, and two men, whose names were not learned, were taken to Frankfort, where a charge of possessing illieit liquor was placed against them.
The men were stopped earlier in the morning by Commissioner Waird of Frankfort and two other officers, and were said to be on their way to Lexington to dispose of the liquor. The arrest was made at the bridge over Salt River, on the Fox Creek road
TRAFFIC GOES ON
It is understood that the repeal law has in no way stopped the traffic of bootleg whiskey in these parts especially the rum running from Nelson county to Lexington, most of which comes by way of Lawrenceburg. Little has been done to stop the trade in illegal liquor since repeal, but police hint that nationwide drive of a most strenuous sort will soon be started to banish the bootlegger in all sections.
One recent act of the Government in its efforts to stop bootlegging activities has been to open the doors to all countries to import all the liquor possible for one month. A large supply of legal liquor will be a great step in stopping illegal traffic, it is believed.
