Title supplied by cataloger.; Photograph was edited for publication purposes. Albert Marco, born Marco Albori, was an Italian bootlegger who was active in Los Angeles during the Prohibition Era in the 1920s. Marco worked closely with Charles H. Crawford, who ran city politics along with Kent Kane Parrot, a powerful attorney involved in city politics. On June 28, 1928 Marco was arrested and put on trial for assault with a deadly weapon when he shot Dominic Conterno and Harry Judson. He was found guilty on two counts and was sentenced to two seven-year terms. He was paroled in 1933 and deported to Italy. He returned to Los Angeles in 1937 hoping to permanently stay in the United States, but he was denied and ordered to return to Italy.
