WHITCHURCH. THE BURGLARY AT GRINDLEY BROOK.—Some- time during Monday night and Tuesday morning the post office at Grindley Brook, near Whitchurch, was broken into and entered by means of breaking a pane of glass in the back window and undoing the catch. The following property was stolen:—A pin-fire six- chambered revolver, a silver brooch made from an American dollar, and 19s. 4d. in silver and copper. A gimlet had evidently been used to bore round the lock of the kitchen dresser, which was broken into. The description of the supposed burglar was given, among others to the Wrexham police. Police-constable Milford being detailed to accompany Police-constable Evans of the Salop force in his quest. Armed also with the useful knowledge that the sup- posed man was a stammerer, the officer went the round of the public-houses. About seven o'clock on Tuesday evening, upon entering the Tiger Inn, in the Beast Market, Wrexham, Milford espied a man answering the description comfortably ensconced before a pint of ale, and apparently enjoying a by no means frugal meal. Hello," said the Denbighshire con- stable, "how long have you been here ? "I've o-o-only j-j-ust c-c-come," stammered the indivi- dual addressed. Then you had b-b-better c-c-come with us," observed the interrogator and forthwith the tramp was marched off to the County Buildings, where he underwent the cus- tomary search. This proved to be of a very fruitful character, as the following list will shew :—Two six-chambered revolvers, a small packet of ammunition, a quantity of brooches, studs, electro-plated spoons, watches, guards, various small trinkets, a candle, gimlet, screw- driver, three keys with an unusual number of wards in them, a silk umbrella, a medal bearing the inscription r Wakefield C.C. and 19s. 6d. in silver and Is. 1d. in copper. The man was subsequently conveyed to Whit- church, where he will be charged with the burglary. Prisoner was brought up before Mr. J. G. Harrison, at Whitchurch, on Thursday, and remanded to Shrewsbury Gaol until Thurs- day next. Sergeant Morris and Police-constable Evans are deserving of credit in connection with the arrest, which was cleverly effected after a long bicycle ride.
