At a special police court held at Llan- dudno on Thursday, before Dr Bold Wil- liams and Mr Elias Jones, Bessie Hersee, wife of a soldier now in South Africa, was brought up in custody charged with com- mitting a number of thefts in Llandudno and the district during a period extending over eighteen months. Superintendent Rees stated that there were about twenty-five charges against the prisoner. The first case opened was for breaking and entering 10, Marine crescent, Deg- anwy, and stealing a drawing-room clock valued at £14, the property of Colonel Stevenson, on the 13th of February last. Jane Hughes, caretakfer, identified the clock, and John Knight, pawnbroker, Nottingham, stated that he had received the clock in pawn by railway package, and advanced £1 by post on it. Inspector Griffith deposed that he charged prisoner with the offence, and she admitted that she had broken into the house by the win- dow. Mr E. W. Johnson, who appeared for prisoner, said that she reserved her defence. A second charge was then brought for stealing a box containing gold bangles; silver spoons, &c., valued at J625, the pro- perty of Mrs N. M. Rowlett, Sutton Bas- sett, who was staying at 17, Gloddaeth crescent, Llandudno, on the 19th of. Sep- tember, 1898. A third charge was brought for stealing a pair of bronzes valued at £2 from the Albert Vaults, Llandudno, on the 12th February last. These also were pawned with Mr Knight. In answer to the clerk, he said he had. written to Mrs Hersee in September last, and asked her if the ar- ticles pawned weere her own. She replied that they were. She had not thought it necessary to state that or she would have done so. Other cases having been heard, the prisoner was committed for trial.
