"We have not decided whether he will be charged in connection with a. postal robbery at Garreltsville, Ohio.last year or as a horborer of Karpis. Karpis was living nt his apartment." Hoover said that Karpts had been in the south and southwest for several months. He was spending most of lib time hunting and fishing. He was fishing a great deal in Florida and along the. gulf coast. Plastic Surgery Failed Karpls had undergone a crude plastic surgery operation, Hoover disclosed. There was a deep scar under his left car and lobes of his cars had been cut. His fingerprints had been mutilated. "The operation," Hoover said, "was performed by" Dr. Joseph Moran, former member of Ihe gang, now Believed dead, but It was a crude job and it did not in the least aller Karpls' features. "Hoover said Karpis is charged with three kldnapings, 15 bank robberies and three or four mail robberies." Inasmuch as the capture was made by federal agenls the $5,000 recently offered for Karpls' arrest will not he paid.

Known as a deadly man behind a gun, whose calmness, coolness, and thoughtful deliberation made him doubly dangerous, Karpls was wanted in connection with crimes ranging from bank robbery and motor vehicle thefts to kldnapings and murder. Only 21, he was regarded as one of the most dangerous criminals In Ihe country. The "wanted" card distributed by Ihe Justice department on Karpis showed that his criminal record dated back lo 192G, when he was sentenced to 10 years In the Kansas slate reformaloiy on burg- (Conlimied on page lliree) Edgar Hoover have, been working for months on apprehension of 1 Robinson and Mahan.
