POLICE ARREST CROOK

Veteran "Pennyweighter" Taken Into Custody by St. Louis Detective While Attempting Theft

St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 7.—Employes of the Mermod-Jaccard Jewelry Co. last Friday afternoon captured Charles W. Eldridge, 61 years old, as he was departing from the store with a silver sugar bowl and cream pitcher valued at $119.50, taken from a shelf in the show case. He told detectives, they say, that he had been a "pennyweighter" for 21 years.

Eldridge had the cream pitcher under his coat and when he was stopped by Charles H. Bittner, one of the clerks, he held the bowl behind his back, remarking to Bittner, "Here's what you are looking for," and holding out the pitcher in the other hand.

As Bittner turned him around to examine more closely, he saw the bowl in the hand behind the man's back and called the house detective, who took Eldridge to police headquarters.

"I should have stuck to 'hoops' (rings)," Eldridge said after his arrest, in admitting the theft of the silver. "Jugs and bowls are not in my line, but everything else was locked up and I took a chance."

"I got away with it for 21 years and only had one visit in the 'big house,'" he said, indicating he had served but one penitentiary sentence.

Eldridge gave the detectives his name as "West" until he was recognized from Bertillon records. Then he talked freely. He said he had come to St. Louis with his wife six months ago and had got along all right until a physician with whom he had dealings shut down on his prescriptions for morphine. He said he went to the jewelry store to get something on which to raise money for the drug. The upright showcase in which the silverware was kept was open and he helped himself.

Detectives later visiting a room at 4152 Delmar boulevard, where Eldridge said he had been living under the name of West, recognized the woman there who said she was "Mrs. May West" as May Watson, classed in the Bertillon records as a "panel worker" who the police say had not been seen in St. Louis since just before the World's fair, when the underworld district flourished here. She renewed acquaintance with some of the old-time policemen at headquarters.

She said since leaving St. Louis she had been arrested in several cities, including Boston, where, she said, she was held in connection with a $10,000 diamond robbery. She said she was never prosecuted because the case was "squared."

Frank J. Liebke, of St. Louis County, has been summoned to appear in the Clayton Circuit Court Sept. 2, to explain why he cannot pay a bill of $425 to the Mermod, Jaccard & King Jewelry Co. This amount is a balance on an account of $625, which included a diamond, ruby and sapphire "preparedness button," purchased April 26, 1917, and a diamond and sapphire ring purchased May 23, 1917. Other items were a $60 gold watch, a chop set, a carving set and watch repairs. Liebke filed a general denial that he owed the bill, but failed to appear in court when the case was called, and judgment for $444.11 was entered against him. The sheriff was unable to find goods to satisfy the judgment, and Liebke was ordered to appear to be examined as to his ability to pay the claim. He again failed to appear, and an attachment to compel him to answer the court's summons was issued.

One of Mermod-Jaccard's Salesmen Accused of Heavy Theft

St. Louis, Mo., Nov. 2.—Thomas Rodgers, a salesman for the Mermod-Jaccard Jewelry Co., has been arrested on a charge of the larceny of $2,000 worth of diamonds, consisting of two pairs of diamond earrings and one diamond stud. Rodgers refused to make any statement.

It has been the custom of the firm to go over the entire stock every morning to see that none of it has been lost. During the holidays last year this precaution was omitted. At the first stocktaking after the holidays the jewels were missed, and at different times since then pieces of jewelry have been abstracted until the value of the goods taken is said to exceed $10,000.

President Goodman King said to a reporter: "At the request of the attorneys we have decided not to say anything for the present. Just say that Mr. Rodgers came to us three and a half years ago from Little Rock."
