Thief Caught Who Robbed McGintys

The following letter has been received by McGintys from the Kansas State Penitentiary.

Feb. 3, 1923
The McGinty Clothing Co. Neosho, Mo.

Gentlemen,

I am writing you regarding the robbery of your store on October 28, 1922. I enclose you herewith photograph of our No. 7239, William Logan, who committed this burglary. He was an escapee from this institution at the time he committed this crime, and after several weeks of investigation, questioning and tracing, I recovered the articles listed below and had them shipped from Trinidad, Colorado, where they lay in the express office. He admitted to the theft of this merchandise and also admitted he took 6 suits of clothing, 2 dozen silk shirts. I now have here the following articles which were in the suitcase received from Trinidad, together with some other goods stolen in Mulberry, Kansas. Have here 4 caps, 5 bow ties, and 80 some odd belt buckles. The clothing and silk shirts he says he sold around at different places. I would like to have you advise me where to ship the above listed articles, as I did not succeed in getting trace of the suitcase until today. I could not notify you about this matter until I knew just what was in it.
I should be pleased to hear from you at an early date regarding the above.

Very Truly Yours,

D.W. Burns, Record Clerk Bureau Of Identification , State Of Kansas

St. Louis Post-Dispatch September 4, 1959

A former convict was captured last night by 2 members of the police mobile reserve unit minutes after he fled from a store carrying a television set. The theft occurred at the Schweig-Engel Co., a radio and television store at 4933 Delmar Boulevard. At about 9 p.m. a man walked into the place, picked up a portable television set and ran out the front door. Morton Singer, store manager, pursued the thief, who ran east on Delmar, while 2 clerks ran out the back of the store down an alley in an attempt to head off the man. The clerks saw him get into a taxi cab which drove off. They got the number of the taxi cab and telephoned police. The number was broadcast over the police radio. At 9:15 p.m., patrolmen Charles Billings and Eugene Smith of the mobile reserve saw the taxi cab at Euclid and Maffit Avenues. The officer ordered the driver of the cab to pull over. In the back seat they found a man and a portable television set. The man identified himself as Arthur Lee Osborne, 32 years old, of the 600 block of N. Vandeventer Avenue. He was booked suspected of stealing. Osborne has served time in the penitentiary. Paul Cohen, a former convict, 5100 block of Ridge Avenue, driver of the cab, was booked, suspected of stealing in connection of the theft, after the two store clerks told the officers that Cohen's taxi cab was waiting for Osborne.

Sullivan Tri-County News July 20, 1961

Lack Of Wrecker Know-How lowers Boom On Thieves

Three young men stole a V-8 automobile engine at the St. Clair Salvage Yard of Mr. Buck Wright of St. Clair Sunday but their lack of know-how in handling a wrecker was their undoing. They had attempted to use the wrecker to transfer the stolen engine to a trailer behind their getaway car. They were observed in their clumsy efforts with the wrecker by Samuel McDaniel, who lives across highway 47 from the salvage yard, and who phoned police chief Al Williams of St. Clair. The highway patrol picked up a radioed message and within 20 minutes after the theft, the three looters were caught as they drove east on highway 66.
While attempting to manipulate the wrecker they tangled it's boom in high wires of Union Electric Co. and Southwestern Bell Telephone Co. Both utility services were disrupted due to damaged wires, a live wire which had fallen set fire to the grass into which it fell, and the St. Clair volunteer fire department had a fire to put out on a hot Sunday afternoon. Arrested at Allenton on highway 66 were Paul Ronald Schremph, 18, of Sunset Hills, Edward Eugene Dinnius, 18, of Crestwood, and Gerald Leslie Squires, 20, also of Crestwood. They are charged with tampering and damaging the wrecker, and are being held under $1000 bond each. Preliminary hearings are set for July 24th.

Novel Plea For Pardon

Jefferson City, Aug. 13---J.B. Johnson, the desperate convict who set fire to the prison and led the revolt in 1886, by which $300,000 worth of property was destroyed, and who has since made several murderous assaults on officers, is suffering with a severe attack of Klondike gold fever. He has written a letter to State Auditor James M Seibert, one of the prison inspectors, that he is very anxious to try his luck in Alaska, make a fortune, become a good citizen, and retrieve his good name. He wants Auditor Seibert to intercede for him with Governor Stevens and secure him a pardon.

Arrest Of A Clever Pension Swindler
Bold Scheme Successfully Worked By An Old Soldier In Missouri

St. Louis, Mo., July 21----One of the slickest pension swindlers ever caught was brought before United States Commissioner Crawford this morning. His name is Charles W Dougherty of St. Charles.
Dougherty is an old soldier and his methods of working his frauds were peculiar.
He carefully noted the notices of pensions granted as published, selecting such as he thought he could work. He would then assume the name of the claimant and notify the pension office that his present residence was at Alton, Ill., St. Peters, Mo., or some other nearby post-office. Renting a box in the post-office of the town designated, he had no trouble getting the mail. He diverted the pension of William C Ready of Nevada, to St. Peters Missouri, but it was discovered that Ready was an inmate at the penitentiary of Carson City before Dougherty succeeded in getting hold of the pension check.
In the same manner, he had diverted to St. Charles the mail of Mrs. Mariah Whitley, who had been allowed $2,870 but the pension office stopped payment on the voucher because it was signed with a mark, while in all other papers Mrs. Whitley had signed her name.
Then Dougherty forwarded a statement purporting to be from a notary that the woman had a sore finger and could not write. This was a forgery. The real Mariah Whitley was afterwards found living in Chicago in abject poverty. Pensioner Examiner Galbraith says he has traced a dozen cases that Dougherty has tried to work, being successful in but one, that being for $2,200.
