Daring Theft at Senghenydd. A WIDOW SENT TO PRISON. Elizabeth Hughes, widow, of no fixed place of abode, appeared before Alderman H. Anthony, and other magistrates at the Caerphilly Police Court on Tuesday to answer a charge of pur- loining articles of wearing. apparel, and a. watch and chain, of the total value of £ l l7s, the pro- perty of Evan Jones, a Senghenydd collier. The evidence showed that the prisoner, who is well-known to the police, had stayed for three weeks at the house of the prosecutor, and on the 3rd inst. she left the house rather suddenly. The prosecutor at the tune was at work, and on his returning he was informed that she had taken with her a parcel, and that she had gone in the direction of Pontypridd. He searched the house and found that his watch and chain, together with a pair of trousers, had vanished. He traced the prisoner to Pontypridd, and found her in a pawnshop, on the point of pledging the property. On his appearing she offered to re- turn the goods, and she then accompanied him to Senghenydd, and she waa given in charge to the police. P.C. Hopkins said that he arrested the prison- er, who, when charged, admitted the theft. In answer to the Bench, she said I am 9orry; I did it in mv drink.
