The Michigan Daily - Wednesday, September 16, 1998 - 7
MIAMI (AP) - He is known as Spiderman, a burglar so
daring and so strong that he can scale the sides of high-rise
condos, so sure-footed that he sometimes wears sandals on
he job, so discerning that he can tell costume jewelry from
the real thing.
Investigators say he has committed at least 133 burglaries
over the past 4 1/2 years, stealing jewels, cash, credit cards
and the occasional laptop computer.
Now police believe Spiderman has been unmasked.
Derrick James, a muscular, 33-year-old former Army para-
trooper, was arrested and jailed without bail on charges of
breaking into the ritzy Bristol Towers on Miami's Brickell
Avenue. Investigators are working to tie him to dozens of
other Spiderman burglaries.
James has pleaded innocent. His lawyer, Ellis Rubin, dis-
*uted allegations that James is Spiderman, saying his client is
in the business of buying old houses, refurbishing them and
Spiderman has become something of a folk hero like other
Florida jewel thieves such as Jack "Murph the Surf" Murphy,
the surfing champion who stole the 563-carat Star of India
sapphire in 1964, and John Henry "The Lizard" Coulthurst,
who in the 1970s would pull up to waterfront homes in a
skiff, scale balconies with a padded hook and a boat ladder
and crank up the air conditioning inside his victims' homes to
,mrown out the noise.
Spiderman used his agility and in credible upper-body
strength to climb quickly from one balcony to the next with-
out ropes or hooks, just his hands, investigators said. He
would climb down the same way, carrying jewels with him.
"One slip and he would have been history," said Miami-
Dade police Sgt. John Petri. "But he had the strength to do
Iranian leader orders
military, officials on alert
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - With tensions increasing with
neighboring Afghanistan, Iran yesterday put its military and
top civilian officials on full alert and called for nationwide
The government called on the public to turn out for
protest rallies following Friday prayers, the official Islamic
Republic News Agency reported.
Both countries have massed troops on their common bor-
der since the fundamentalist Taliban admitted 'Thursday to
killing eight Iranian diplomats and a journalist last month.
The official Islamic Republic News Agency quoted Iran's
supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, as saying yester-
day that military and top civilian officials must be ready
"for speedy, timely and decisive implementation of whatev-
er decisions the senior political and security authorities
The leadership of Iran's parliament warned that the situa-
tion in Afghanistan "will turn into a regional and trans-
regional crisis" and urged Islamic nations to meet to counter
the threat, IRNA said.
In Saudi Arabia, Taliban representative Mawlawi
Shehabuldin said the religious army does not want war with
Iran but that -we are ready to encounter and fight against
any outside Iranian invasion." I 1is comments were made in
an interview with the London-based AI-Sharq Al-Awsat,
which was to be published today.
The Taliban, which controls about 90 percent of
Afghanistan, is widely believed to be supported by
Pakistan. Iran, alleged to be backing the alliance fighting
the Ialiban, has urged a government be formed of all
Most Pakistanis are Sunni Muslims like most Afghans.
Iran has a majority of Shiite Muslims.
Yesterday, thousands of Iranians marched in the city of
Qom, south of Tehran, protesting the diplomats' deaths,
Iranian television reported.
There have been widespread calls in Iran for a strike on
the Taliban, whose forces killed the Iranians after capturing
the Afghan city of Mazar-e-Sharif on Aug. 8.
Iran continues to accuse the Taliban of holding some 40
truck drivers who were taken prisoner when Mazar-e-Sharif
fell last month.
Derrick James, a former Army paratrooper, is suspected to be
the "Spiderman," who committed more than 133 mbberles.
what he did and he did it very well."
One reason Spiderman was successful, investigators said,
is that few people expect criminals to be crawling around the
outside of buildings 30 stories high. Many victims didn't
have their terrace doors locked, and some of those who
noticed Spiderman assumed he was a maintenance worker.
He always worked between 6 p.m. and midnight and usu-
ally struck on weekends.
Three times, Spiderman, who never wore a mask, was con-
fronted by condo owners as he tried to enter homes fwm bal-
conies. Each time, he scampered over the railing and alimbed
back down. He also was neat, leaving condos the way he
found them, except for the jewels.

MSA Vice President Sarah Chopp
said the resolution MSA voted in favor
of last night was simply a display of
their support of students' rights.

issue of University admission policies,
but the rationale that MSA should "let
