This arrest led the police to the underworld syndicate, -,, hose members were outraged to discover that they had been swindled. They had been sure that the money was genuine. They relinquished the $.10,000 of bogus money still in their possession, offered to co-operate to the limit with the Federal authorities, and, according to a report in the New York Times, "promised to take Burtan for a ride."
