BURGLARS ACTIVE AT SWANSEA "ENCORE" VISIT TO MESSRS. J-NES, DICKINSON AND CO.'b. MOST MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR. File premises of Messrs. jones, Dickinson and Co., Ltd., Swansea, were twice broken into in a determined manner by burglare last week, but the culprits were only able to take away about £ 10. How entrance was affected remains partly a mystery, but the office was the point they made for, and this they broke into presum- ably from the Goat-street entrance. The police have the matter in haud, A "Daily Post" representative who visit- ed the euaLIlsiiiiicn. on Monday, was able to judge for Irmself of the probable meth- ods adopteo. Fovv entrance was effected has, so far, baffled tne police. It ec,iisthiit on Tuesday morning, when the employes en- gaged in the office upstairs arrived, they found the door had been forced, the lock broken, and small packets of change left for the girl cashiers missing from a desk. The front parts and roof of the building were at the time in the hands of workmen, who were effecting repairs, and ladders ,1!- lowing access to the roof were left leaning against the walls. In the day-time a front window in an upper storey ivas opened to allow workmen to proceed with their em- ployment, but after the day's work this was closed. On Friday morning the cashier was aina-zed to find the office door again open. A new spring lock had replaced the old one, and this the burglars failed to force, and a chopper from a side room was obtained and the panels of the door smashed. The bur- glars went for the same cash drawer, and took about three packets of money contain- ing 25s. each, and some loose money, but, evidently working in the dark, overlooked a packet of five-shilling pieces. The total amount stolen was about £ 10. There was no sign on the premises to show how en- trance to the building had been effected. The front fan-light in Oxford-street is the only other possible place, although there is no sign of persons having made an entrance Miore. One theory, however, is that some- one concealed himself on the premises dur- ing the repairing work and left the premises by means of the ladders.
