Dick Black, right, grandfather of West Atlantic City resident Rich Black, was a member of the ‘Owl Squad,’ a vice unit on the Atlantic City Police Department that used to hunt rum-runners during the Prohibition era.
Rich Black owns a collection of photos and memorabilia from his grandfather’s days on the police force. ‘My grandfather ... would tell me amazing stories.’
A beer mug given to Dick Black by Chicago gangster Buggs Moran reads ‘To Dick, Let us drink when we meet and meet when we drink. From Buggs.’
