Branch = Army
Enlistment 24 May 1920, Release 11 June 1923

- Mont Lincecum found himself in the Sacramento Bee newspaper several times, often for his police work.  Perhaps one of the more interesting articles, dated 4 February 1943, had this headline and beginning:

Chief Says Probe Clears Policeman Of Ties With Club

Police Chief…submitted a report to Acting City Manager…today stating "there apparently is no foundation" to a rumor that Detective Captain M. W. (Buck) Lincecum has a financial interest in the Reliable Clubroom, 1017 Sixth Street.

…The Reliable Clubroom is one of several places ordered to cease illegal gambling operations as a result of stories published in The Bee.

Another article eight months later claimed this:

Detective Captain Is Named In Will Of Card Room Operator Detective Captain M. W. (Buck) Lincecum of the Sacramento Police Department will receive a trust fund bequest of undetermined value from the estate of his friend, Harry (Holland) Plafker, west end businessman and card room operator who died October 4th...

To be clear, to my knowledge, Captain Lincecum was not found to be guilty of any wrongdoing.

Take all mistakes as good wishes.
