having participated in two robberies,
it Is likely that the police will secure
additional charges against them of
robbing hbue< ? in the West End of the
city, as < onsldcrable plunder, which
ha? not yet been Identified and is like

appears that Roy Tinder and "Bonny '
Biggs are the ringleaders of the gang.
Which operated in trio* with Biggs as
th'- main leader, as he is held on two
charges, having participated in both
the Dey and Levy robberies.
A diamond and pearl brooch, which
! a i h'e< stole n from the tvmo of
George \V, Dey. has been recovered by
the police, the. other articles consisting
of valuabL irlnklets gold watch and
Hlverware being distributed In pawn
shops In Richmond and Baltimore, and
it is likely that It will be necessary
to s-nd a man to these cities to locate
Practically all of the property stolen
from th,- residence or Lewis Levy has
been recovered by the detectives.
Considerable other articles and wear?
ing apparel which has nut been iden?
tified has been recovered.
All of the robberies have been done
in broad da>' light, according to the
I ( vs.
rrnbatKn Officer Stevenson learned
ot the boys connections with the rob?
beries and extended his aid Thursday.
Eugene, or "Teddy" Smith, and David
oi "Bonny" Biggs, were picked up and
! ?' ! in the matrons' department.
< harged with breaking parole.
Gradually the net around the boys
began to tighten, and on Saturday.
Clyde Robinson and Roy Tinder were
arrested, and when the tour boys were
confronted by the evidence secured by
the police, they admitted their guilt.
During th* confession of the boys It
was learned that Sullivan had been
connected with th.- cane, and he was
arrested this morning.
Evidence to show that the boys were
rot novices at their work, was shown
by their determination to get the
stolen goods away from the city. Af
tet looking over the plunder, they de?
cided to pawn the brooch at this end
in order to realize enough money to
tr. ke them to Richmond and Baltimore.
Having done thts. they left here for
I Baltimore where the other goods were

While the captives still maintained
