Alleged Imposter Caught

A well-spoken young man who supposedly was passing himself off as a Voice photographer was taken out of circulation last Thursday. He is alleged to be responsible for robbing a brace of East Side art galleries, after gaining the confidence of the owners by telling them he was working on a picture-spread for the Voice.

Claudius Harris, 25, of Staten Island, was apprehended by Detective John Dolan, who remembered that the young man had been involved in a similar sort of case two years ago.
