Suspect on Board

From The Evening Independent, St. Petersburg, FL, on this day in 1937:

Gun Dealer Held in Redwood Case

Hackensack, N.J., March 9 - AP - A New York gun dealer, identified by Prosecutor John J. Breslin Jr. as Moe Saraga, was held without bail today as a material witness in the killing of R. Norman Redwood, New York "sandhog" union leader.

Breslin said Saraga was the last known possessor of one of the pistols used to kill Redwood in front of his Teaneck home, Feb. 19. He was taken off the Queen Mary when it docked in New York early today, Breslin said, was rushed to the Wadsworth avenue [sic] police station - New York headquarters of the special police bureau set up to find the Redwood killers - and then brought to Hackensack.
