A JUVENILE THIEF. At the Middlesex Sessions on Monday Reginald Smith, 14, was indicted for breaking and entering the shop of Zechariah Moss, and stealing therein the sum of £ 34 10s. The prosecutor was a clothier at 46, Praed-street, and the prisoner had been in his employ- ment as errand boy, but was discharged. Some weeks ago the door was broken open and the till robbed. The prisoner was suspected and an inquiry was made. In the meantime the prisoner's father had discovered that his son was in possession of a large amount of money, and it was also stated that he had shown hand- fuls of gold and silver to some of his companions. There was no doubt that the prisoner knew all the prosecutor's premises thoroughly; and in his cross- examination of one of the witnesses, a boy named Dodd, he exhibited considerable cunning. He made the witness admit that he bad committed several rob- beries, but failed to shake his evidence in this case. When the father of the prisoner first suspected him the latter ran into an outhouse and hid all the money he had left there. He had previously given a sove- reign to one of his youthful companions. The jury found the prisoner Guilty," and the Assistant-Judg9 sentenced him to three weeks' imprisonment with hard labour, and five years' detention in a reformatory.
