PICKPOCKETS AT WENVOE SPORTS. ADJOURNED HEARING OF THE CASE AT PENARTH. PRISONERS AGAIN REMANDED FOR A WEEK. At Penarth Police Court, on Monday last (before Mr J. S. Corbett, chairman, and Mr Valentine Trayes), Thomas Smith, a young man of respectable appearance, was charged on remand with stealing a silver watch, value jE5, the property of William Coles, a labourer, of Wenvoe, on the 28th ultimo. The evi- dence of the prosecutor, as published in the BARny DOCK NEWS last week, was read over, and Mary Coles, prosecutor's wife, said she was present with her husband at Wenvoe Sports on the prwious Wednes- day, and was standing behind her husband near the ropes, watching a race, when she saw the prisoner suddenly strike her husband on the face with one hand, and snap his watch chain and steal the watch with the other. She at once raised an alarm, and prisoner made off, but was immediately pursued by the police and others, and he was soon afterwards apprehended by the police after a sharp chase.—John Sylvanus Evans, grocer's assistant, Penarth, said he was at Wenvoe Sports on the date named, and saw prisoner running away about half-past four or five o'clock. He saw the prisoner drop a silver watch, and he (witness) picked it up and handed it over to Police-constable Ben. Davies at the police station.- Police-eomrtable Ben. Davies, stationed at Barry Dock Town, gave corroborative evidence, and said prisoner was very violent as he was being taken to the police station, and struggled hard to get off.-Prisoner pleaded guilty, and hoped the Bench would be lenient with him, as he had never been in prison before. He also said he was severely abused by the police when they took him to the police station, and was struck on the head with a stick.-Sentence was deferred for a week. ANOTHER CASE. The prisoner in the last case, with John Thomas Roe, were then charged with conspiring together to steal a silver watch, belonging to Charles Lane, 65, Glamorgan-terrace, Canton, Cardiff, at the Wenvoe Arms, Wenvoe, on the same date.—The case was again adjourned for a week so that further inquiries might be made as to the prisoners by the police.
