SPECIAL POLICE COURT. MONDAY.âBefore Messrs. S. Perks (in the chair), J. Y. Strachan, and Abel Jones. THEFT OF FOWLS BY A WOMAN. Emma Williams, charwoman, Victoria Road, was brought up in custody charged with having stolen five fowls, the property of E. P. Griffith, poulterer and game dealer, Sussex Street, Rhyl. Mr. Griffith identified the fowls (produced) as his property, and said he missed them from his fowl house in Mill Bank, on Satur- day morning. He valued the fowls at 12s. When he missed the hensile gave informa- tion to the police. John Greeg, carter in the employ of Mr. Mullins, skin merchant, deposed that pri- soner called at his house on Friday evening offering hens for sale. After some conversa- tion he agreed to buy them, and they were brought to him on Saturday morning. He paid 6s. 6d. for them. Inspector Williams said that in conse- quence of the information given him by Mr. Griffith, he examined the fowl house, and found it had been broken into, entrance having been effected by forcing the staple. of the lock. He then called on last witness; and in consequence of what he told him, he went to prisoner's house in Victoria Road. He charged her with having stolen five hen. the property of Mr. Griffith. In reply she said Yes, I did steal them on Friday night, and sold them for 6s. 6d. to Mr. Greeg. I was very hard up, or I would not have stolen them' Prisoner pleaded guilty, and the prosecu- tor stated that he bad no desire to press the charge. It was the first time he had lost anything from the fowl house. The Inspector, replying to the Bench, said there was nothing against the prisoner pre- viously. She was a hard working woman, wno gamea ner uveunooa by charing. The Chairman said the Bench considered they were taking a lenient view of the case in the sentence about to be passed, because this was prisoner's first offence, still they must protect people's property, and she had brought herself within reach of the law. Prisoner would have to go to gaol for 21 days with hard labour (sensation in court).
