  • Payette Enterprise, Idaho, 28 Aug 1919
    Locates Booze Factory
    Sheriff H. L. Noe of Malheur County seems to have some of Sheriff Jefferis' blood-hound instinct in locating boot-leggers, booze and booze joints. According to an article in the Malheur Enterprise Sheriff Noe took the scent and trail last week to a homesteader's cabin south of Vale where he located, under the floor of an old building, a modern distillery in a Midden basement 10 by 12 feet; also a large quantity of good old family disturbance which was confiscated for evidence and all equipment destroyed. The owner of the homestead, Mr. Harvey Sackett, was taken in charge and brought to Ontario that evening and arraigned before U.S. Commissioner, C. M. Stearns, after which he was bound to await Federal Grand Jury, furnishing his own bail of $1,000.00.
