Description
Photograph article dated December 20, 1957 reads, "A sack, which to a neighbor looked like a body hanging from a North Hollywood apartment window, led Valley narcotics officers to a $1,000 cache of marijuana and the arrest of two brothers. Paul A. Powers, 32, and his brother Vince, 26, who share adjoining apartments at 6428 Vesper Ave., were taken to the Van Nuys station yesterday and booked on suspicion of violating the state narcotics act. Officers J. A. Olsen and Don Davis made the arrest and found a plastic potato sack containing more than two pounds of marijuana hanging from a window. They said they also found more marijuana hidden in the refrigerator, on the ground beneath the window and under the bottom drawer of a dresser. They also found a .32-caliber automatic and three rifles." Pictured is Paul A. Powers. See image 00155612 for additional photo in this series.
