Brothers, Woman Held In Car Theft, Forgery

Two brothers, one on a three day pass from a Rome Ga. Tuberculosis hospital, have been charged with forgery and auto theft by Florence police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Charge in warrants issued Friday were Leonard F. Mixon, 59, of Savannah, Ga., Accused by the FBI with interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle, and Miles Theodore Mixon, 53, of Rome, Ga., charged by Florence police with forgery.

Mrs. Leonard Mixon was also arrested with the brothers Wednesday but no charges have been made against her.

The trio was arrested after it attempted to give checks at two Florence firms and succeeded in cashing a check at a third according to Det. Gene Lessmeister of the Florence Police Dept.

The trio cased a check for $74.69 at Bell’s Shoe Store after making small purchases, police said. Earlier they had attempted to cash checks at J & J Drug Store and the Florence Shoe Store.

Darlington Police reported the trio cased a check for $72.43 at McCoy’s Service Station in Darlington earlier in the week.

Det. Lessmeister said the brothers told police Leonard Mixon sent a telegram to Rome TB hospital requesting a pass for his brother because his niece was ill. The Savannah couple met the TB patient in Macon, Ga. then the trio came to the Florence area, police said.

Miles T. Mixon, according to police is on parole from a Louisville, Ky. prison where he was sentenced to life for armed robbery in 1938. He was paroled in 1949.

The FBI charges Leonard Mixon with transportation of a 1955 Ford stolen May 28 from Federal Services Finance Corp., Savannah, Ga. He is being held in Darlington County jail in lieu of $1,000 bond.

Miles T. Mixon is being held in the Florence County jail on the forgery charge.

Ex-Prisoner Dies
Court Order Brings 8 Days of Freedom Days of freedom in the bright southern sunlight were brief for Miles Theodore Mixon. Eight days ago Circuit Judge Frank Taylor ordered him released from Kanawha County Jail and ruled the man had been detained since the April term of Intermediate Court in 1961.

Yesterday D. Jackson Savage, the Charleston Attorney who obtained Mixon's release, received a telephone call informing him the mand died in a hospital in his native Georgia. Following his release from jail he had been driven to the home of a sister by members of a Kanawha County family whose son he had befriended while in jail here.

Savage said Mixon, about 55, became ill in route home. He died of pulmonary pneumonia. He describe the man a highly articulate and possessed of a charm and personality.

Savage said Mixon had an arrested case of tuberculosis and that when taken into custody here in 1962 on a charge of forgery said he committed the offense to get hospitalization.

Intermediate Judge William J. Thompson ordered Mixon sent to Hopemont Sanitarium in June 1962. the man later was returned to the Kanawha County Jail.

Taylor and Judge Thompson lacked authority for the order and ruled that since three terms of Intermediate Court had passed since Mixon's indictment without his having been arraigned for trial he could no longer be tried on the charge.
