Inspector Brackenreid doesn't think very highly of Eddie Crawford, because of his shady dealings. Eddie, more often than not, is questioned during an on-going case and has found himself to be a suspect on the brink of being arrested. He has been called a weasel by associates.
Appearances and Mentions
- At the Station House, when brought in for questioning, Eddie claims he does not know anyone named Honeyman nor anything about Italian treasure arriving in Toronto.
- Eddie Crawford tries to correct Murdoch, "Detective, I know you like to entertain a fantasy of me as some sort of criminal mastermind, but I'm just a simple businessman trying to make a living. I just can't help you. I'm a curio man. Italian antiquities don't exactly fly off my shelves."
- Eddie Crawford becomes the subject of one of many fraudulent obituaries, and he is not too pleased about the situation. He appears more annoyed rather than worried at the fact that someone wants him dead.
- While Crawford's Pawnshop is under Station Five's jurisdiction, Inspector Brackenreid warns Eddie that "Oh and by the way, any Toronto Constable can arrest any thieving bugger - anywhere in the City of Toronto," to which Eddie insists, "Well I'm not paying twice is all I can say." Twice? Eddie Crawford is taken to the interview room by Constable Crabtree.
- Eddie reluctantly informs Detective William Murdoch and the Inspector that Chief Constable Davis is extorting money from him and reveals the method:"I put the money in a hollow brick at the back of my store and some constable from Station Five takes it."
