They also announced they -had located Ihe $1,000 Adams reportedly was carrying when he disappeared a week ago last night. Police Chief Hamilton R. Atkinson said Pedro Fiuley Crooms, 33- year-old Negro auto plant worker, was charged "with the murder of John Irvin Adams." Atkinson said Helen Jefferson, 30, and Army Sgt. Robert Palmer, stationed at Ft. Holabird. both Negroes, were charged with "being accessories after the fact lo the murder." Palmer was identified as a former UCLA pre-medical student who has a wife and children in Texas. Adams was one of six Negroes arrested Sept. 28 when State Po lice, bypassing counly authorities, raided an establishment at Turner Station in the southeastern corner of the counly. They said the place was headquarters for a six-million- dollar-a-year numbers ring operating in Ihe Baltimore metropolitan area.

His ha,nds were tied, his- head had been Bashed in and he had been gar- rolcd. ..Reports were rampant that Adams had been killed by racketeers, perhaps even out-ot-stale gangsters to silence him in connection with the numbers racket. -But counly police announced earlier in the week that. robbery was Hie motive. They picked up Crooms and Miss Jefferson last Friday. Bail was set for Hie waitress at $5,000 but her atlorney said she would not post it 'because she fel safer in jail. In announcing ' the filing* oi charges last night, Atkinson said his men had determined Ihe "lime and place of.'the -crime as well as all Ihe basic .facts, regarding the manner of the homicide." He llianked Slale Police and Bal lirnore Cily Police for "their of fers of assistance," but said he was "glad the work of our departmenl made any outside help unnecessary." Gov. McKeldin had named Police Commissioner James M. Hepbron of Baltimore as his persona: representative in the Adams murder' investigation. The governor left the Southern Governors Conference in Alabama yesterday, a day early, saying his first order of business on arriving n Maryland, would be lo confer wilh Hepbron on the Adams case. Atkinson also said "my confidence in the men of my department has been justified by Iheir actions. His statement concluded, "In view of the legal restriction on prelrial publicity, no member of Ihe counly police dcparlmenl, in eluding myself, will have any fur- Ihcr comment on the case." The three persons charged were held in the Parkville Police Sla lion. No hail was fixed immediate ly. Man To Serve Sentence On Successive Sundays ROANOKE, Va.
