He had a penchant for fur.

 

From My Daguerreotype Boyfriend:

Daniel Tohill, age 27, 1908. Mugshot via the New Zealand Police Museum. Tohill was acquitted of stealing a bicycle but found guilty and sentenced to four months hard labor in prison for stealing a fur necklet.

This married father of three had two previous convictions, which included stealing from a railway shed and nabbing two ferrets.

 

…Seriously, was fur worth that much?
