THREE BOY SHOPLIFTERS
ARRESTED BY POLICE
They Ate "Young in Years but Have
Some Tricks of the Professionals
at Their Disposal.
Three youthful thieves and n ulrl,
who purchased from one of them u
stolen pocketbook, have been rounded
up by the police In the last two- days.
Constable Robert. Koohlor, of tho
Seventeenth ward, was walking along
Spruce street on Saturday afternoon
when he was approached by a. young
boy, who nulled a pocketbook from
under his coat and offered It to him for
sale. Constable Kochler took the young
ster In charge and turned hi in over to
Oltlcer Perry, who happened to be pass
ing. The lad was taken to headquarters,
where, after having been repeatedly
questioned by Superintendent Day and
Detective Deller, he finally confessed.
He said his name was Johnny Martin,
of Tenth street, and that he was 12
years old. He went into the Globe
warehouse with Eddie Flanaghan, 14
years old, of AVest Lackawanna ave
nue, and Tony Nuder, 14 years old, of
Tenth street, on Saturday, ho said, and
stoic six pockotbooks.
His story of how he and tho other
two boys rifled the pocketbook counter
reveals a knowledge on their part of
an old game worked by professional
crooks. He said that he would grab a
pocketbook from the counter and slip
It to one of tho other boys, who would
nut It under his coat. Jf anyone saw
him taking tho pocketbook and he was
taken In charge, a search would, of
course, fall to reveal the presence of
tho stolen property.
Detective Deiter secured warrants for
the arrest of the other two boys, and
they weie taken into custody yester
day. All have established reooids for
themselves prior to this affnlr. The
Martin boy rejoices in the sobriquet of
"Mickey, the Hun," and together with
young Xuder is a member of the
famous "Yellow- Kid" gang.
The Nuder boy was arrested last
summer for stealing a revolver from
Rawlings' bicycle repair shop on Penn
avenue. He crept behind the counter
111 broad daylight at that time and stole
the weapon while business was in pro
gress. He was convicted, but sentence
was suspended by court because of his
Pearl Lainont. a young girl who is tin
Inmate of a. disorderly house in Ray
mond court, was also arrested, yester
day by the police, on the chaige of re
ceiving stolen goods. One of the boys
stated that he sold her one of the
poeketbooks for fifteen cents.
The Martin boy was held undtr S300
ball on Saturday, and the other three
prisoners will be given a bearing this
