Camden Courier-Post – June 6, 1933

Leo Kuchinski, 18, of 14 Jasper Street, pleaded guilty to a charge of larceny before Judge Samuel M. Shay in Special Sessions Court yesterday. He received a suspended sentence to Rahway.

Kuchinski was arrested through Charles Salvaggio, a watchman at the Pusey & Jones Shipyard, Gloucester, who said he fired one shot at Kuchinski after he had sought to pry loose a piling support at the end of a wharf.

Kuchinski said he had been ill. He said he expected to sell the piling for $.50 cents with which he intended to buy medicine.
