Summary:
Printed caption on original envelope: "NEW YORK DETECTIVES ENLIST AID OF FORTY POLICE DOGS IN HUNT FOR DARING PANTS BURGLAR / NEW YORK CITY -- Police Commissioner Whalen's forty police dogs returned to their kennels at five o'clock this morning, tired and rain soaked, but happy after trekking through Staten Island's finest residential streets since early the night before. For the first time in the past six months there had been no Saturday night burglaries or hold-ups on the island. Even the insidious 'pants' burglar had refrained from plying his trade. The dogs have been specially trained to trip up burglars so that the heavy handed and heavy footed arms of the law might come upon them. PHOTO SHOWS: A squad of the midnight searchers returning to the station house.
