E. Costen. . Charles Williams, St. George, and James Plaster, Webster county, were taken into custody at the "farm of William's mother, Mrs. Hattie Williams. Also arrested were, the mother, and two other sons, Francis Williams, 28, and Arthur Williams, 18, all of near here. Charles Williams and Plaster were ordered at a preliminary hearing this morning before Justice of 'the Peace Lawrence Lipscomb in Parsons to be returned to the West Virginia State Penitentiary at Moundsvllle. • Mrs. Williams was released ' on S500 bond and Arthur Williams released on his own recognizance, while Francis WL'liams was ordered held in the Tucker county jail. . All had waived preliminary hearings to the charges of stealing, poultry, from area farms and dressing and marketing them, Sheriff Crosten explained. They will be tried in the March term of Tucker county circuit court. Mrs. Williams..and Francis and Arthur Williams were arrested Christmas Eve. Sheriff Crosten said she admitted that Plaster and her son; Charles, had stolen the poultry which she and her two other sons marketed.. Her confession led to the capture of the two escaped convicts. Crosten-declared Plaster and Williams fled i'rom the Medium Security Prison Farm at .Huttons- ville'six weeks ago and apparently had been hiding out at the Williams farm since that time. Sheriff. Crosten, with Deputies Fielding Kyer' and Clarence Haller, surprised the two convicts at the .Williams farm after walking a mile and a half through the woods. They'offered no resistance, Crosten stated, but earlier the mother had told, authorities that the pair threatened to kill anyone who attempted to arrest them. The two men' told Crosten they had fled when' they saw him approach the house-on'two previous occasions. The sheriff said he found several dressed chickens In a woodshed at the home when he made the arrests. Many farmers reported that large quantities of poultry had been disappearing in the past three weeks, but fear of reprisal stopped them from informing authorities.
