Myrtle is Light-Fingered Lester's accomplice in crime. She holds the midget, dressed as a baby, in her lap, and sells newspapers to passers-by while Lester picks their pockets. When they are spotted by Officers Clancy and O'Brien, they run in different directions. Myrtle is trailed by O'Brien to her apartment. When she takes a phone call from Lester, O'Brien arrests her, and gets her to tell him that Lester is hiding in the Switzer Residence. O'Brien and Clancy then find Lester and bring him and the gang into Police Headquarters, where Myrtle and Lester are locked up.
Myrtle was played by Sue Moore.
