Nakag'atfa left tlio District Court

from thtt-JJIghtroot camp, the money
that hasVljeeii retained In tlio pos

Judge I.ymer evidently did not
concur In the I.lghtfoot recommenda
tions, and. In fact, the court finally
ruled that the police department had
the right to take such moneys under
its clinrgo as arc found In tho pos.
session of a prisoner.
It was at tho order of Judge I.y
