Gathering them in.

--Officers Perrin and Morris have struck the trail of an organized band of thieves and garroters, and are gradually gathering them in, for the Mayor to dispose of. These creatures infest certain public houses, where they lie in wait for their victims, and resort to all sorts of expedients to induce strangers to exhibit their money and jewels, and to get possession of them afterwards.
