Veteran Burglar Owen Prinfy Arrested on Long Island, February 1926

Owen Prinfy, veteran burglar, using the name of Murphy, was arrested for attempting to enter a Long Island home this fall. Because he said it was his first offense, the judge was willing to put him on parole.

Then Louis Stock revealed the man's true identity as Owen Prinfy, old offender; and Prinfy, instead of getting a job, was given five years in Sing Sing.
