Mugshots, arrest records, buffalo ny 1920s
« on: Friday 17 March 17 17:39 GMT (UK) »
As I discovered in old newspaper articles my great great grandfather was arrested for allegedly selling two glasses of whiskey to drysquad officers during the prohibition. He paid $100 fine. I believe he wavered examination. This occurred in 1921.

I am wondering if anyone knows if a mugshot would have been taken and if these records are kept anywhere in particular?

Thanks!
