'Mystery Car' Is Sold at Auction; Morris Bid Highest
The Bisbee Daily Review
December 31, 1922
H. E. Berner, of the U. S. Customs Service, at Nogales, was in the city yesterday for the purpose of selling the "Mystery Studebaker" that has been held in the city for several weeks. The car was sold at auction and brought $275. It was purchased by Clyde Morris of the local police force.
The car was seized here by Deputy Sheriff Gipson several weeks ago while in the custody of a man named Kress. After an investigation had been made by agents of the department of justice and other officials it was discovered that the car had been smuggled across the Canadian border without the payment of duty.
