Bugsy Siegel arrested....
Item # 580760
April 17, 1941
THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 17, 1941 This 48 page newspaper has small and somewhat discrete one column headlines: "HELD ON LEPKE CHARGE", "Siegel Arrested in Los Angeles on New York Indictment"
This tells of the arrest of Benjamin 'Bugsy' Siegel for harboring gangster Louis (Lepke) Buchalter.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day throughout. Good condition.
Note: This was for the most part, a unknown event and I wouldn't be surprised if the New York Times was the only newspaper to cover this given the inconspicuous report here.
