POLICE INTELLIGENCE. MERTHYR POLICE- AIOIVDA Y, FEB. 9. Present,—T. W. Hill, and W. Meyrick, Esqrs. Marianne Morgan, of Pontystoreliouse, was charged by Ber- nard Trenor with stealing from his person the sum of i7) 13., on Friday night last. Complainant said I am a hawker of silk shawls and handkerchiefs, and come from Irelind. I have been at Merthyr this fortnight, and lodged at the Boot. I was out on Friday "night last, and remember seeing this girl near the Crown Inn, between nine and ten o'clock. I spoke to her first. I asked her, "Will jou come for a walk, my dear;" Yes," said she. I was not quite sober, but sober enough to know what I was doing. It might be I drank ten glasses, mostly of ale, during the day, at different places. I had in my pocket about £ 71, which consisted of 42 or 43 sovereigns'^ three jE5 notes, one cheque for £ 13, and an old guinea. I counted them i\lat morning,and felt them in my pocket between nine and ten o'clock that night. T had been walking with two ladies before, but am quite' sure I had the money after I left them. It was in the top pocket of my Taglioni coat, which is open, in a netted purse, and that again in a leathern one. She took the netted purse, and left the other. I am certain that prisoner took them, for the light in the shop by which she had been standing enabled me to see her distinctly. When I dis- covered that I had been robbed, I ran after her, but she was out o sight very soon. I then went to Mr. Williams, Angel Inn, and without loss of time he accompanied me to the police station, and informed the I)olice.-David-Williams: I am the landlord of the Angel Inn. I have known complainant twelve or fifteen years, as a hawker travelling through lertbyr with valuable silk shawls and handkerchiefs; knew him to ask fifteen guineas for one shawl. I always considered him to be a very respectable mail. He came to me between nine and ten 011 Friday night, and said he had been robbed of £71. We went to the police station together, and he gave a description of the trirl to Sergeant Rees.—Sergeant Rees: At a quarter to ten, on Friday night last, I remember complainant and Mr. Wil- liams coming to me. Trenor made a charge of robbery, and gave me a description of the girl. In consequence ot ttie de- scription, I app'ehended the defendant at the house where she lives, at Pontystorehouse cellars. She was thoroughly searched by a female, and I searched the house, but we found nothing. There were other parties in the house.—Committed for trial at the next Glamorganshire assizes.
