Ocean-Flyer Levine Faces Charge as Smuggling Suspect
from the Los Angeles Times, August 10, 1937.

NEW YORK, Aug. 9. Charles A. Levine, former scrap metal dealer whose troubles began shortly after he and Clarence Chamberlin, the aviator, made a successful flight from New York to Germany in the old Columbia, is in trouble with the Federal authorities, it was learned today, on charges of smuggling.

A complaint on file with United States Commissioner Garret W. Cotter charges Levine with facilitating the transportation and concealment of some 5000 pounds of tungsten powder, which was smuggled into the United States from Canada in the fall and winter of last year. Levine has been released on $500 bail for the action of the grand jury.
