Lawrence County News reported on August 3, 1921 that two men from Vincennes and Marion Briggs of Lukin were arrested 2 weeks ago by Sheriff Stivers in connection with the operation of a still near Billett. They were given a hearing in county court and discharged.

The name of their attorney was not given.
