Suspected of break, enter and steal
Simmons was known to police as a pickpocket, housebreaker and counterfeiter. Early in his career he escaped from police custody and went on the run for three years, committing crimes up and down the eastern seaboard. He was attracted to country shows and race meets, where he could easily steal from unwary attendees before melting back into the crowd.
