EXTENSIVE SHOP-LIFTING AT LLANELLY. PRISONER BEFORE THE MAGISTRATES. A FORMIDABLE LIST OF STOLEN ARTICLES, Shop-lifting on an exceedingly large scale has recently been practised at Llaneliy by a woman named Margaret Beynon, the wife of a respectable working man, and her daughter, a girl of fourteen. Their custom appears to have been to make periodical and systematic mids on goods exhibited outside their shops by tradesmen. The theft of a piece of bacon from one shop and a box of sultanas from another close by, in Station-road, on Monday evening, the 12th inst., led to the de- tection of the lifters," and the subsequent search of their home revealed such a quantity of stolen goods as to positively stagger the public. Immediately after her arrest the elder prisoner made a clean breast of it, exonerating her daughter, however, from blame, intimating that the latter had simply acted by her instructions. Great interest was manifested in the proceedings, hundreds of people, chiefly women, lining the streets, and the accommodation afforded by the Town-hall proved utterly inadequate to the demand made upon it. The prisoners wore brought up in the custody of Police-Constables Evans and M'Coy, and, besides the numerous tradesmen involved as witnesses, Police-Sergeant Howell Evans and Police-Sergeant D. Lewis gave evidence. The identified goods which the prisoners admitted having stolen comprised :-A roll of silesia, 12 yards of brown Irish, 4 bags, 7ft yards of alpaca, 25 yards of print, 16 towels, 48 yards of calico, 19 yards Qf print, 21 yards dress pieces, 14 yards French merino, a cheese, lime brush, 6 turnovers, 13 yards of Welsh napnel: 71 pairs of stockings, 14 pairs of boots, trousers and vest, 2 buckets of lard, 10Mbs. of bacon, a. box of bacon, and a bundle of laces. These belonged to Messrs. Thomas Anthony, Golden Key loan James, Bon March6; J. Randell and Son; —Hughes, Golden Fleece; James Williams, Station-road; Lewis and Daniel, Carmarthen; Oliver and Son, James Auckland, John Harries, David James, Ed. Colliver, and W. Knoyle, Stepney-street; Evans, Murray-street; Thomas Jones, and D. H. Rowlands, Station-road. Mr. W. Howell has been retained for the prosecu- tion. During the hearing of the case the defen- dants had their faces averted, and at times sobbed audibly. The prisoners were committed for trial to the next quarter sessions (which open on Thurs- day), bail being accepted for the daughter.
