This Day In History: 1932-02-20
Some times the work of the local police brushes the big time crime of other places. The Police blotter records the visit of Detective Sgt. Eley and Detective George Seely from the Bayonne police. They asked for Chief Smith’s aid in arresting Sam Dominick and Patrick Bingham of Mahwah who were wanted in connection with a gangland “ride murder”. The blotter reports laconically “men located”. The next day Smith was asked to investigate a car recently purchased by one of the suspects and thought to have been used in the rubout. He reported that he found no evidence of whether blood or bullet holes in the vehicle.
