There were reports that the KellyGang got their supplies from a chinese store keeper at The Buckland Gap in late June 1880. They had pack-horses to carry it away. He said they came down from the ranges, two at a time; this, he stated, they did frequently. When asked why he did not tell the police, the store keeper replied that the police were too frightened to go near them. The KellyGang said if he told the police they would be shot and then burnt.(RC5483)
