Stealing Oranges. Gel 11 Boys Before the Magistrates At the Ton-Pentre Police Court on Monday, three boys from Gelli, Silas Baker, Hugh Jones and David Jones, were charged with stealing fire orangefi from the shop of Charles Alfred Baldwin, greengrocer, 180, Gelli Road, Gelli. Prosecutor said that on the 27th ult., about, half-past seven in the evening, he was in the kitchen behind the shop, when he heard a noise in the shop. Going to the shop he found the three prisoners running away. He ran after them and caught Baker, and on him found three oranges. In reply to the Bench, prosecutor said that he did not see the three boys in the shop; it was only Baker whom he saw there. P.C. Swaffield said that he went to 180, Gelli Road, and there saw Baker in the custody of prosecutor. He con- veyed him, together with the other two boys, to the police station, where they were jointly charged with the theft. In reply to the charge, Baker replied: David Jones went into the shop first, and took two oranges. I went in and took two." One of the Joneses said that, he received an orange from Silas Baker, but he thought that Baker had bought it. Why did you run away?,, queried Mr. T. P. Jenkins. "I wanted to go to the theatre," answered Hugh Jones. "You started away rather suddenly, didn't you?" observed Mr. Jenkins. Baker was fined 5s., while the Joneses, who had similar offences previously re- corded against them, were fined 10s. each.
