It is alleged that Sulsono is one of the leading members of a gang which has stolen 200 automobiles and ship ped them abroad. during the past year. Three mont70 ago, when SULS0110 Was still in Bridgeport, the local po lice got wind of his alleged illegal ac tivities, anct endeavored to place him under arrest- When detectives arriv ed at his home, however. they found that he had departed for parts un known. Hin brother, LOTIIS Sulsona was taken into custod3r, but this man proved that he had nothing to do with the auto stealing organization. A large number of automobile reg istration plates were found in an ash can SI:1180110'S house, this fact lead ing the police to believe that the garage was maintained as a hiding place for stolen automobiles before they were shipped out of the country. Sulsono was implicated in the af fair by three other men who were captured in a New York garage last night, after a thrilling battle with two detectives. He admits that he shipped 64 automobiles to Porto Rico, where his original home is located, btrt de nies that any of the machines were stolen.

The license plate of the Cornell and Trotter cars were among those found in the ash can at Sulsono's home.
