Ermine-Wrapped Patron Caught in the Gambling Den…
A gold-lame evening bag shields her face as one of 50 carriage-trade gamblers ducks out of 18 E. 68th St. after raiders early yesterday interrupted their $5 to $1000-a-chip roulette game. Cops sent the customers home but confiscated the equipment and held five men as operators, including George Herrick, 45, described by detectives as successor to Arnold Rothstein. PM Photo by Weegee
