Tiger Girl and the Candy Kid: America’s Original Gangster Couple by Glenn Stout

Eight days after his October 1921 wedding to Margaret Messler, Richard Whittemore pried a neighbor’s window open, snuck inside and filled a suitcase with stolen clothing and jewelry before nonchalantly walking out through the front door. Authorities caught up to the newlywed just over 24 hours later. Given his previous criminal record, which included a burglary conviction and subsequent stint at the Elmira Reformatory in New York, the judge handed down a harsh sentence: one to ten years in the Maryland State Penitentiary.

Richard spent his time in jail cozying up to career criminals and planning for his eventual return to society. Shortly after his release in April 1924, the couple carried out their first joint operation, stealing $350 in cash from a confectionary shop.
