From the Dec. 15, 1921 Campbell County Record:
Jack Murphy, J.B. Henley, and Frank McGraw are the names given by three men arrested in the city this week for selling merchandise within the city limits without a license. They are being held on a charge of grand larceny, on a showing that the goods were stolen from a Burlington freight car. It is alleged the men entered the car at a point east of here, probably Moorcroft, and threw the goods off near Minturn. They hired a car at Gillette to bring the goods to town, and they were trying to dispose of the loot when Marshal Russell picked them up for peddling without a license. Burlington Special Agent Kilgore identified the merchandise, consisting of a quantity of rugs and some smaller articles. It is reported that the men have admitted their guilt. The goods, destined for a Montana point, was an inter-state shipment, and the case will probably become a federal case.
