His Tenth Appearance. IMPUDENT THEFT AT RHYL. At a special Police Court held at Rhyl, on Monday, Mr. Elwy Williams, presiding, Thomas Jackson, a rag and bone gatherer, of no fixed abode, was charged with the larceny of a quantity of lead piping and biass fittings, valued at £ 2 25. od., between the 14th and 15th instant, from two houses in Vale-road, Rhyl. The prisoner pleaded guilty to the charge. Sergeant Dempsey said that he and P.C. Oldfield made inquiries concerning the lead piping and discovered that the prisoner had sold it to a local marine store dealer. He was arrested about 7 o'clock on Saturday night last at Rhuddlan, but when charged he denied having committed the theft, and said that he knew nothing about the matter. lie was subsequently conveyed to Rhyl, and upon being shown the pieces of brass he re- marked I admit it now. The two houses in question were unoccupied. He could not say how the prisoner got inside the houses, but they found the back yard doors open and the back door of one of the houses as well. Mr. John Hughes, of Vale-road, said he had just bought the houses, and that when he last saw them they were all right. Inspector Pearson said that the prisoner had been up nine times before. He had been given a month for assaulting a female at Conway. He had also been sentenced for stealing a barometer at Colwyn Bay, and had been given six months for stealing a gas meter at Rhyl containing a sum of money. They had complaints of such a thing taking place at Rhyl, and in another instance the stuff had been rolled up ready to go down and it would cost a pound or two to put it up again. The Chairman, addressing the prisoner, said that they knew of nine of his offences, and probably there were twenty-nine which they did not know of. They felt very sorry that thev could not punish him more severe- ly, seeing that he was evidently a pro- fessional thief and tramp. There was no doubt about that, so they had agreed to send the prisoner to gaol for six months with hard labour. The Prisoner: Thank you, your worships.
