Rapid Justice


Richmond Avenue ~ 1940

On a Friday night in 1946, a fellow broke into two businesses in Grande Prairie.  Saturday he was in custody and sentenced, and on Monday was on the train to the Prince Albert Penitentiary.  He was well on his way to prison before the newspaper reports of the break-ins and his capture appeared on Thursday.
