Good Thursday Morning to you all! Criminal Minds week continues here at OPOD with this picture of Eddie Guerin. Eddie was a notorious thief of the late 1800's. In 1888 the New York times described him as a "not so successful" criminal, but at the same time "daring and industrious". In 1888 he was tracked to a saloon, and an officer attempted to make an arrest. Eddie shot the officer and made his escape. He then went to London, where Scotland Yard was soon on his tail. He was captured in London after a high speed chase. He then escaped again. In 1901 he was captured in the US, and accused of robbing an express office in Paris. He was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.
