JOHN CROUCH CAPTURED. (
Sheriff Buford Finds Him in Virginia. v
Crouch, it is Said, Was Going I
to Marry. d
Sheriff' M. M. Buford returned last 1
week from Lynchburg, Va., with John
Crouch, white, who escaped jail sev- t
eral months since, a full account of i
which has already been given in The f
Herald and News, along with a story i
of the robbery -which Crouch~and two c
others are charged with. Some time
ago Simp Sanders, the other white <
man who escaped with Crouch, was i
caught while visiting his wife in Un- <
ion. When Sanders was recommitted i
he told Sheriff Buford that he had ]
separated from Crouch near Lynch- 1
burg and had not seen him since.
Sheriff Buford, who has a well earned I
and well deserved reputation as a re- i
markably successful officer in the line
of running down and* recapturing i
escaped prisoners, as well as ferret- i
ing out new cases, went immediately 1
to work to recapture Crouch after be- i
ing told of his separation from San
ders. He laid his plans and kept
quiet, as he always does when look-It
ing for big game. He quietly follows
one clue after another until the time
for action comes and then when
everything is ready he swoops down
upon his unsuspecting victim. By
keeping still and exercising that great
patience for which he, among other
qualifications of a good officer, is not
ed, Sheriff Buford knew that some
day in the course~ of human events t
Crouch would be in Lynchburg. He
bided his time and went about in the
performance of his many other- duties 1
as though Crouch had been forgotten, i
successfully throwing Crouch' off I
guard. In the meantime the secret
work was going on. One day last week I
the reporter was in the sheriff's of
fice looking around. He overheard the
sheriff talking to the governor's pri
vate secretary, telling him to get the
governor to have the chief of police
of Lynchburg rung up. The. reporter
heard the name Crouch and . some
thing about requisition papers, etc.,
and thought he was' about to get a
good' piece of news for last Tuesday's
paper, but the sheriff, in that qpiet 4
and determined manner of his says,
"Hold on a while, something might.
slip; don't say anything yet." After
completing arangements as far as -p4
sible by phone through the governor's]
office Sheriff Buford gQt busy, but did
not get off' to Lynchburg U. asty as
he expected on account of other press
ing business matters that unexpected
ly came into his hands just then. Fin
ally he went to Lynchburg and re
turned with his -prisoner as above
stated. But a more detailed account of
the trip will be interesting to the
readers o~f The Herald and.News.
The sheriff left Newberry on Tues
day of ,a..st week on his mission, stop-]
ping in Columbia to get his commis
sion, etc., from the 'governor. The re
quisition papers were to be forward
ed to the governor of Virginia at
Richmond. The sheriff proceeded to
Lynchburg, expecting Crouch to ac
company him back to Newberry with-1
out delay. Crouch refused to do so'
without the papers. .The sheriff wait
ed two days and still the papers had
not arrived. Becoming tired of such
a state of affairs Sheriff Buford t4Ie- 1
graphed Governor Mann's office, and
was answered that thy requisition pa
pers would not be sent until the fee
of fouN dollars had been received. (
Sheriff Buford promptly wired the'
amount and in due time got the pq
ners. That was all the trouble he
had with Crouch. They returned Sat- -
One 'reason why Sheriff Buford had
no more trouble in the matter was
that he had, in the first stages of the
game, found out that Crouch had for- -
merly worked in Lynchburg three or 3
rour years. He had written the chief
of police there to that effect and giv
en him other information, asking the (
e~hief to be on the look-out for* the
~scaped prisoner; to set his traps and
'lay low," for the man would be sure
Lo get caught. Sheriff Buford's
prophetic forecast was right a gain, as
the sequel shows.
While in Lynchburg Sheriff Buford
was treated with the utmost courtesy
and kindness by the officials of that
sity and by other citizens with whom
die came in-'contact, -and he appre
3iates the same. In connection with
lis visit the Lynchburg News of the
14th has a complime:izary allusion 'to _
sheriff Buford in its write-up of' the
arrest of the prisoner. The News
says: "The sheriff said he had been
Lreated most courteously by the po
lice officials of this city. He is an
ald "Confed," having served in the'
Eifth South CArolina cavalry, in But
ler's brigade, which was in engage
nents near Winchester, Petersburg
ind Richmond. At the second battle,
f Cold Harbor he was slightly
vourdled by a spent ball." -
In the same paper is reproduced
from the Richmond Times-Dispatch
in interesting piece of news connect
ad with this affair, recounting the in
~eliigence, that the prisoner wanted
:o get married, which accounts for his'
drotest against returning .t Sogthj
'arolina. Following is the same:
"John Crouch, of South Carolin
rants to get married, says the Rich
iond Times-Dispatch. Therefore, he
oes not want to go back to his native
;tate in charge of an officer of the
"Crouch is in jail at Lynchburg. In
he Hitl City is also M. M. Buford,
vho is ,awaiting requisition papers
rom Governor Mann. The prisoner
s under indictment in Newberry
ounty, S. C., for grand larceny.
"About the same time that the re
Luest for the official papers reached
he governor's office yesterday there
ame a letter from Crouch.- He says
hat he has reformed and wants to
ead an honest life in Virginia. Fur
hermore, he has won the heart of a
Tirginia woman and wants to marry
ier. He does not want his plans in- -
"But the governor can not do any
hing in the premises. He has a for
nal request from Governor Ansel for
he person of Crouch. Everything Is
n order excepting the necessary fee,
md when that comes in the request
;ill be honored and the papers sent
"Crouch is accused with two others
>f the crime of stealing the sum of
85 against certain statutes . and'
tgainst the peace and dignity of the
state. The alleged crime was cos.
nitted on January 1 last and Crouch
,scaped on February 5."
The story of the crime which the
nen. are charged with is famillr to
he public. Johh Crouch and Simp
