Ledger Getting Closer To Coming Home To Dodge City

KSCB News - October 1, 2009 12:00 am

A historic Kansas police docket with

references to Wild West lawmen Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson is one

legal step closer to being returned to Dodge City.

The ledger details city court cases from 1878 to 1882, and the

FBI has said it’s worth about $100,000. It was seized in May from a

home in Blacklick, Ohio.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Kansas said Wednesday that it

expects to file a settlement agreement in federal court and ask for

a final order returning the book to Dodge City.

That comes a day after U.S. District Judge Monti Belot issued a

partial default order removing all potential claimants except Dodge

City.

FBI Special Agent Robin Smith said in an affidavit that city

officials believe “persons unknown” stole the book sometime after

1950.
