An arsonist, who during the depression was used by more than 200 small businesses in Brooklyn, a narcotics runner, counterfeiters who manufactured many thousands dollars worth of fake American Express Travellers cheques, a people smuggler and a jeweller who made a very poor gambler, and financed his habit with tax evasion and embezzling his clients money.
