NYPD Sgt Michael Miller had pulled over a livery cab after he noticed it speeding through Manhattan with Officer William Reddin.
But as they approached the car, Miller, a 13-year veteran noticed one of the passengers, Eugene Graves, making suspicious movements near his waistband.
Veteran actress Anna Bjornsdottir, 57, allegedly got to know Catherine Greig, over the animal which lived near Whitey's Santa Monica apartment, while she stayed at a hotel across the street.
But after she returned home to Reykjavik, she saw a TV report on the one time leader of The Winter Hill Gang and realized that the woman she knew as Carol Gasko, was one in the same.
Now the Boston Globe is reporting that the FBI has paid her $2 million in reward money for the tip off, which led to the arrest of the one time leader of the city's notorious Winter Hill Gang.
The young mom was picking up her son from the McDonough, GA daycare last month when the sneak thief moved in and took her, purse which contained her credit cards, checkbook and phone.
She told cops that she'd noticed a guy with "distinctive gold teeth and braids" in a black Toyota Rav 4 nearby, but had left her car unlocked as she only expected to be a few seconds.
That was all it took for him to strike.
Then a a few days later a friend contacted her to let her know that a "strange man's picture" had appeared on her Facebook wall.
Either way Nikia Goode, Vernon Bundy or Johnny Taylor must have been stunned when the cops turned up, just moments after they sat there plotting to steal scrap metal.
What they couldn't have known is that one of them had led officers right to them by accidentally dialing 911, when they sat on their phone.
