Dynamite Cache in Atlanta Linked to Columbians; Many Rounded Up

Download PDF for this date

Georgia Assistant Attorney General Daniel Duke said today that he had direct evidence linking the Columbians with a cache of dynamite uncovered here yesterday. The dynamite was seized when Lanier Waller, a former Columbian, led state investigators to the shack where it was kept and, while the investigators hid, purchased $10 worth from the men living there. Many members of the Columbians have been rounded up and questioned in recent days in connection with Duke’s investigation.
