“Last Wednesday Sheriff PEARE, upon the order of the judge of the Circuit court, destroyed 12 gallons of booze which had been in storage in the jail basement a long time. It was taken from Vandalon FAYTOCK and Robert ROBERTS of Mecca in October, 1920, while Charley THOMPSON was sheriff. The men, arrested that the time, were never tried but were discharged by the court. Saturday the sheriff destroyed five gallons of whiskey that was taken from George JOHNSON and George HART, Indianapolis men, who were caught west of Marshall last August.  This stuff is always held by the sheriff as evidence until it is ordered destroyed by the court. Sheriff Peare poured it out in the gutter that runs past the jail.”
