The raid took her by surprise.
Sheriff Wade Stewart, Deputies
Moore, Lemuel Gregory, and Buck
Griffin went to the front door
and Art Bryant, head of the Dunn
ATU office, and Woodrow Her
ring, Dunn ABC officer, went to
the back door. i
‘ LET ME THROW IT OUT”
Moore said when Mrs. Tart saw
them she grabbed up part of the
whiskey and ran to the back door
to pour It out.
She spotted Bryant and Her
ring, both wearing civilian cloth
ing at the back door, thought
they were two customers coming
to buy a drink, and told therm:
••Let me throw this out quick;
the law Is ar:er me.
The two officers quickly reliev
ed her of the bottles.
Deputy Moore said a search of
the premises turned up a quantity
