OfFEft EXPIRES: NovMHber SO. 1974 Leeper in his Mary/and home with wife Donna and their three daughters. Hero worship is written all over the face of one. 5, and Marsha 3 months. Then came the burglary call to proceed to Watergate. Donna might still have had her birthday party--and Watergate remained only the name of an office-hotel-apartment complex on the banks of the Potomac, except for several flukes. The first was that Squad Car 80, which would normally have responded to the call, was out of service temporarily. If Car 80, with "police" written all over it, had pulled up, the lookout across the street would have warned the five men via walkie-talkie, and they would have vanished. . But Leeper and his men drove up quietly in their unmarked car, found a legal parking spot, and walked casually into the building. The lookout (a former FBI man) watched them carefully--and decided that they were harmless civilians--probably repairmen. . ". The first time he realized there was trouble was when he saw Leeper's team, with drawn guns, searching the eighth floor, balconies and all. But by then, the inside men, who were afraid its static would betray them, had turned off their walkie- talkie, and the lookout's warning went unheard. - . - . ' . . Through the seventh floor and down to the sixth came the police, and the Watergate Five were trapped. Officer Barrett spotted ah elbow behind a desk and the illegal entry was over. But for Leeper, Barrett and Shoffler--and Donna waiting at home--the long night had just begun. , "Police work-is mostly cut and dried anyway," says Leeper modestly. "A well-trained officer does what he must do automatically; any fear or questioning comes later. "But I must admit that when I saw those 10 hands go up, I thought/Well, I expected one and I've got five; how do I know there isn't a sixth one behind me with a .45 aimed at my skull?' I turned around ve-ry slowly. But there wasn't." Care pays off Then'the careful procedures began to pay off. Even though none of the officers knew what they had gotten hold of, they knew it was no ordinary $150 typewriter snatch. While the well-dressed burglars looked with some dis- . belief at the ragtag trio which had them under arrest, Leeper read each man his rights as he was frisked. Later, Leeper read all five the same statement of rights, including.the right to contact an attorney. * Considering tKe ramifications of the case, the powers who were involved and the kind of attorney who showed up (without any of the five bothering to call him), any imperfection in the arrest routine might have ended the affair very quickly. ("I knew we were really on to something when I saw that lawyer arrive to represent them wearing a $300 suit," said another policeman later.)
