Address in 1941: 1452 Elizabeth, Denver
Transferred to RAF Ferry Command
Sailed from Scotland to USA on 16 Jun 1942
In January 1947, he was arrested for 'terrorizing wealthy women' and being a gem and fur robber to the tune of $75,000:
Described as a "former ferry pilot turned limousine highwayman", he had kidnapped three women in Park Ave, New York on New Year's Eve, drove them around and then robbed them of their furs and jewelry.
"Down to less than 100 pounds and wrapped in a blanket, Justin William McCarthy, 26, Park Ave. gem and fur robber, sat in a detention cell on the 12th Floor of the Criminal Courts Building yesterday."
By the following June, suffering from dysentry contracted in North Africa during WWII, he was too sick to appear in court. "I just want to get this thing all over with", he said.
The judge ordered the prisoner transferred to Riker's Island where he could have special medical treatment.
He was sentenced to '10 to 20 years' in 1948.
