AN EVANGELIST CHARGED WITH EMBEZZLEMENT. Arrested at Aberdare Junction. The police have been considerably exercised for some time past as to the whereabouts of one George Thomas, a baker, of London, for whose arrest a warrant was issued in November, 1894. upon a charge of embezzling 8s. Sd., the moneys of his employer, Mr. Hill, baker, of High street, Acton, near London. A few months ago he was traced to Cardiff, but he disappeared from there. and as a result of enquiries made by the Cardiff XI- Nis under the assumed name of George illiams, was engaged as an evangelist in that town. The search tor the missing one was unsuccessful, and it was then thought that the place mi-lit be Aberdare Junction and not Aberdare. Accordingly, on Tuesday night the Pontypritla police communi- cated with the police at Alterdare Junction, and about U o'clock P.C. Nicholls proceeded to a local preacher's house in Catherine-street. There he found Thomas, and upon charging him with the offence he replied, I am the man you want. I have been thinking of giving myself, up for some time." He was then taken into custody and removed to the Pontypridd Police Station. A telegram was forwarded to Scotland ard on Wednesday morning announcing the arrest, and an officer was immediately despatched to remove him to Acton. Thomas, it appears, has been in Aberdare Junction for three or four months, and during that time conducted evangelistic services of a successful nature at the Temperance Hotel in that mining village, but under the name of George Williams. He is a married man with three children.
