Feb. 28, 1930 - "Dry" officers raid De Pere drink parlors: Federal prohibition agents on their first raid in Brown County for several months swooped down on two places in De Pere Thursday noon and placed three men under arrest. A warrant, they declared, will be issued for a fourth, who could not be located.

The alleged operators of a wildcat brewery in the basement of a home at 714 S. Michigan St., and a bartender and the proprietor of "Alley Inn," 111 Broadway, will be arrested, the agents declared.

Both places were visited simultaneously. In the basement of the home were found eight half-barrels of beer, 170 gallons of fermenting beer and complete brewery equipment. One of those arrested told the agents that he had merely rented the basement to his brother, and that he had nothing to do with its operation.
