Slippery Eddie, the infamous pickpocket, was back at work, and every detective had to be especially vigilant.  Eddie’s technique was to jostle a victim toward a confederate who would then slip the man’s wallet out of his back pocket while Eddie was stammering an apology to the confused dupe.  Within a week the incipient crimewave came to an end when Slippery Eddie inadvertently chose the chief of police for his victim.  Although Eddie loathes Sing Sing, it’s his permanent address now.
