A Seasonable Theft. At Porth Police Court on Thursday last, Joseph Wm. Pugsley, William St., Trehafod, was charged with stealing two geese, the property of James Passy, 14, Woodfield Terrace, Trehafod. The prosecutor said that he locked five geese in a cot at the back of his house on the night of the 21st ult., and on the following morning two were missing. He saw footmarks near the cot, and subse- quently he found feathers, which he iden- tified as those of his geese. John Terry, spragger, 9, William St, Ynyshir, said that on the 17th ult. pri- soner asked him if he (witness) would kill a goose. Witness replied that he would, and eat it too (laughter). Then prisoner asked him if he would kill a goose for his father. Witness replied, All right." On the 22nd he again saw Srisoner, who asked him if he (witness) had anything for Christmas, and then he told him that his father had another goose, which witness could have for half- price if his wife dressed a goose for him (prisoner). He brought the goose to the house on Friday morning about ten minutes past six. P.C. Lucas said that he arrested pri- soner at Trehafod on Wednesday even- ing and conveyed him to Porth Police Station, where he was cautioned and charged with stealing two geese from be- tween 5 p.m. on the 21st and 5 a.m. on the 22nd ult., the property of James Passy. In answer to the charge, prisoner replied: I was going to work, when I saw three geese in the back of the road. I picked up two, and took them to Mrs. Terry, 8, William Street, Ynyshir. I asked her to dress them for me, as they were my own, and that I would give her one. I gave her one, and she dressed it for me, and I took it to Cardiff." Prisoner at the Police Court pleaded that he was very sorry, and asked the Bench to deal leniently with him. The Stipendiary remarked that they had no option in the matter, and prisoner would be committed to Quarter Sessions.
