ALLEGED DOPE GANGSTER CAUGHT, PLEADS GUILTY
Buell Cantrell said to be connected with some of the higher ups in a Dallas dope ring, was arrested Saturday and pleaded guilty to possession of twenty-eight grams of morphine at a hearing before United States Commissioner John Davis.
Although confiscation of heroin and marijuana is fairly common, morphine is seldom seized as it is much more expensive. Cantrell was placed under a $1500 bond.
NOTE: There are several articles on Buell in reference to dope. There is also an article about Buell being involved in a robbery.
Here is another article of interest to you. This appeared in the Dallas Morning News on December 3, 1951 Part III Page 1
