Serves Writ of Attachment on Express Company for Money Packages Shipped by Fakers

Originally Published In The Galveston Daily News, Sunday, February 28, 1909, Page 1.

Davenport, Iowa, Feb. 27.—Packages supposed to contain $60,000 shipped here by alleged swindlers under arrest at Little Rock, Ark., arrived today by the American Express. The American Express Company was served with a writ of attachment and garnishment papers by B. F. Cavanaugh of Davenport, one of the men who by a fake wrestling match is alleged to have been swindled out of $37,000 by the Little Rock prisoners. The express packages will probably be allowed to remain unopened in safety vaults until produced under orders of the District Court here at the April term.
