3 Broward Women Identified As Associates Of Krasner's Fort Lauderdale News, Friday, February 9, 1979 Continued From Page IB Last spring, Krasner was arrested on the New York obscenity charges at Miami International Airport after returning from a trip to Spain. He successfully fought extradition to New York and never stood trial on the charges, Enders said.. N Enders added Mrs. Zuber and her mother, Rose Lamanna, also fought extradition and have yet to be arraigned in Utica. But the prosecutor noted that three men named with the South Broward women have been arraigned and are scheduled to be tried in Onida County Court Feb. 20. Both Mrs. Zuber and Mrs. Lamanna are charged with obscenity, a felony charge in New York, and conspiracy to distribute porn materials, a third-degree misdemeanor, Enders said. In two sections of the indictment, it is alleged Mrs. Lamanna served as a president of a Krasner-run company, according to senior court clerk Gerrold Goetz. The indictment charges that, on Sept. 9, 1975, Mrs. Lamanna, as president of Lo-Ji Sales Inc., signed a lease for an adult bookstore in Yorkville. N.Y. She is also alleged in the indictment to have been president of Phil-Jon Corp., which police in Allentown, Pa., where Krasner's smut empire is based, said was named, in part, for the dead man's son Philip. Mrs. Zuber's role in the the alleged porn conspiracy also was to serve as a corporate officer, said Ronald Bush, organized crime investigator for the Utica Police Department. "Both were officers in at least one of his corporations," said Bush. Woman Shot In Robbery Continued From Page IB Besides Buckley, Miss Doornbosch and Miss Deiss, another young woman was already bound and masked in the apartment. Eighteen-year-old Susan Ruhl, who said she moved here in late January from Toms River, N.J., had been invited by Buckley to move into his apartment last night until she could find her own place. ' Miss Ruhl said she alone in the apartment when the intruders broke in. "I was in the bathroom, just about to open the door, when suddenly these men kicked it down and punched me in the head," said Miss Ruhl. "I asked them what was going on, what was happening, but they just told me to be quiet, tied my hands with some tape, and put a blanket over me." Her captors then waited as, one by one, the other victims entered and were similarly trussed up and blindfolded. Miss Ruhl said she heard one of the men say, "DA" or "DEA," as he met one of the victims at the door. "I thought he meant district attorney," Miss Ruhl said. Detectives, however, believe the intruders were trying to pass themselves off as agents of the federal Drug Enforcement Administration. While rifling through drawers and personal belongings, the two men kept demanding of Buckley, "Where is it? Where is it?" the victims told police. Detectives said Buckley told them he did not know what the men were looking for. , The victims added that they could hear the men using walkie-talkies or some other type of radio to communicate with a third person. Finally, according to Miss Ruhl, the intruders received a radio message: "Get out the back door, quick." The two men fled immediately. Miss Deiss, despite her leg wound, freed herself within seconds. She began untying the other victims, police said, but Buckley, apparently fearing the gunmen would return and kill them for trying to escape, demanded to be left bound. Miss Deiss then grabbed a knife, cut through a screen over the front window of the apartment, and Developers Say Escrow Means Ruin Continued From Page IB buyers of condominiums. Mrs. Kolb's ordinance would extend that protection to the buyers of single-family homes. Samuel Miller, the North Lauderdale City Councilman who introduced the original ordinance in his city, said, "it's the consumer .who is getting stabbed" without the protection of this bill. Commission Chairman Gerald Thompson said he has offered an amendment to the ordinance to give the buyer the choice of having the funds kept in escrow or not. There appeared to be support on the commission for the ordinance with that amendment. Commissioner George Piatt said "granted it's going to add to the cost of the house." Developers and officials were unsure just how much the price would increase. Dennis Corbett, a builder in Sunrise, said the increase would be substantial because the imposition of the escrow account would force many of the small builders to hold down production and eliminate competition. . No representatives of giant development groups such as Arvida and Hollywood, Inc. spoke at the hearing. Corbett said he already provides an escrow account as a service to his customers. He said some do not even want to use it. He said a legally required escrow account would force him to curtail his building. Corbett said builders rely on the money from the new homeowner to buy land and begin work. jumped down to the ground. Even though her companions warned her that the two men might still be outside, police said, Miss Deiss decided to risk the jump from the second story window in the hope that the gunmen had left or were at the rear of the building. She ran to the Las Olas home where she had been staying and telephoned police. Patrolman Robert Campbell, first to arrive at the Las Olas home and first at the apartment, found the other victims. Bush said corporations tied to Krasner operated two adult bookstores in Utica as well as the one in Yorkville. The two Utica stores have been closed, while the smut outlet in Yorkville is still in operation. Mrs. Zuber and her mother lived together for about IS years in a house at 7130 SW Eighth St., Pembroke Pines, neighbors said. But about a month ago they moved out and did not say where they were going, a friend added. " Pennsylvania police identified Mrs. Bollerman as an officer of two companies allegedly tied to Krasner: Kacar Inc. and Rigo Inc. Lebanon County, Pa. authorities said Mrs. Bollerman's name as an associate of Krasner surfaced when she applied for a license in Allentown to have a building renovated.. Investigators learned a Philadelphia address she listed on the application was an empty lot. She later reported that she lived in Fort Lauderdale, they said. Mrs. Bollerman now is standing trial in Lebanon County on obscenity charges. The case is said to be the first real test of Pennsylvania's new anti-pornography law, which follows the Detroit experiment of trying to zone the smut shops out of business. Broward investigators said they . believe Krasner, who arrived in Fort Lauderdale Jan. 31, was in town trying to convince local porn dealers to sell his magazine, Puritan. Local investigators said they did not know the three women were linked to Krasner. DOWN TO EARTH SALE! HOT DOGS & PEPSI 5C OSKY DIVERS diving into Fowlkes Parking Lot at 2 P.M.
