Long Description: Author Allan R. May will give a free lecture about his latest research into the Penn-Ohio Burglary Ring, which operated in the mid-1950s, mostly in the Warren area. According to May, key members of the safe-cracking ring were reputed to be two of the Mahoning Valley's most infamous underworld figures - Joseph "Fats" Aiello and Ronnie Carabbia. May is the author of several true-crime books and is an authority on the history of organized crime in the United States. His book “Crimetown USA” is the history of the Mahoning Valley Mafia and organized crime activity in Ohio’s Steel Valley from 1933-1963. He is currently completing work on “Crimetown USA: Part 2.” Copies of his books will be available for purchase and signing at the event. Registration for the lecture is recommended by calling the library at (330) 399-8807 ext. 128. Admission is free.
