ABE RGAVENNY. PRACTICAL JOKING AT THE POLICE-COURT.âOn Wednesdayâbefore Messrs W. Llewellyn and F. P. J. Hanbury WilliamsâThomas Gardner, Charles Watkins, and George Barrett, all of Abergavenny, were placed in the dock, charged with stealing a hare, the property of Mr David Roger Jones, of the Old Herefordshire House.â Mr Iltyd Gardner, for the defence, admitted that Gardner had taken the hare by way of a practical joke, but said that the other prisoners had nothing whatever to do with it.âAfter hearing the evi- deneo for ths prosecution, the bench dismissed Watkins and Barrett.âMr Iltyd Gardner then addressed the bench upon the evidence, and urged that there was no felonious intent on the part of prisoner, who, according to the evidence for the prosecution, had been drinking, took the bare in open day, and carried it a short distance, and then openly laid it on the kitchen table at the Black Lion. Hence he went to Vance's entertainment at the Town-hall. He did not behave in any way like a man intending a felony.âThe bench, after a short retirement, came to the conclusion that it was a practical joke, although a. very perilous one, and dismissed the prisoner with a caution against such practical joking in the future.
