Before Prohibition, illegal gambling flourished in Toledo, a wide-open city where criminals from other places could lay low until things cooled off. With Prohibition, Toledo faced three years of terror when Yonnie Licavoli of Detroit’s Purple Gang strong armed his way into Toledo’s bootlegging and gambling scene.
