A police raid, led by Serreants Cook and
Vanous. on a cottage at 1507 Webster street
at 10.30 Saturday morning, resulted, ?o the
police declare. In a big and Important cap
ture of criminals. Seven men and a woman
were taken up by the police, at least two
of whom have penitentiary records. The
latter are Tom Lawless, alleged burglar
and house worker, and Jamea Johnson,
alias Jim Jones, burglar.
The raid followed a call from Detective
Maloney, who "tipped" off their presence
and a rtrol wagon full of officers was
hurried to the scene.
At the station the following names were
given: Tom lawless, John Ryan, Oliver
Stephens, Jim Jones. W. C. Clifford. James
Callahan. Frank Howard and Georgia
The little cottage where the arrests were
made has but two rooms and the officers
found the men and the woman holding a
carousal. A search of the premises failed
to reveal any stolen plunder, but Captain
Savage of the detective department be
lieves that with the arrest of the gang the
robberies and burglaries so frequent ol
late will cease.
When Jones was being booked Captain
Savage saw something suspicious In him
and upon Investigation found the man to
be wearing a suit furnished discharged
prisoners from the state penitentiary
Upon looking up the records It was found
that Jones, under the name of James John
son. had been sent up January 28, 1908,
along with Charles Parker, for burglaris
ing a commission house on Eleventh street.
Parker is now wanted here on a statutory
Ryan gave his address as Chicago and
Howard came here from Missouri. All of
the others live in Omaha. Lawless, so the
police declare, has a long record, and the
officers are convinced he Is at the bottom
of the numerous burglaries reported during
the last few days. The haul Is looked upon
by Captain Savage as a most Important
one. The men, when booked at the sta'
tlon, were-charged as auspicious characters,
but it In the belief It .will be possible to
fasten other charges upon them.
