Young Pender's Stealing's

New York, 1895

Charles Pender, 18 years old, son of Train Despatcher Pender, of the Long Island railroad repair shops at Morris Park, was held by Justice Duffy, of Long Island City, to await the action of the Suffolk county grand jury. He was arrested by Detective Sarvis, charged with breaking into the railroad station at Southampton on May 1 and taking $15.30. Young Pender confessed to having also robbed the station at Sag Harbor of a number of express packages last winter.
