After a short time and several run-ins with the Memphis police, he decided to leave town with his girlfriend and head west. He changed his name to George R. Kelly to protect his family and to avoid law enforcement officers.

He continued to commit minor offenses and engage in bootlegging. In 1928, he was arrested in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for smuggling liquor onto a Native American reservation, and he was sentenced to three years in Leavenworth Penitentiary in Kansas, beginning February 11, 1928. He was said to be a model inmate who was released early.
