CITY POLICE COURT. 4 THURSDAY.—Before Dr. Stolterfoth, Sir T. G. Frost, and Messrs. Charles Brown and T. Smith. DOG STEALING BY A TATTENHALL MAN.— W. Threadgold, of Tattenhall, was charged in custody with having stolen a dog, valued at RI, the property of John Culshaw, of Saltney.— Culshaw stated that he missed his dog at about two o'clock on September 20th, and as the result of enquiries he found the dog at the Police Station. P.C. Wakelin said he had received a description of the man who was supposed to have taken the dog, and in consequence when he met prisoner in Foregate-street he asked him what he had done with the dog. Prisoner replied that he had sold it, and took witness to the place where he had left it. John Smith, shoemaker, Leadworks-lane, said he was standing at his shop door on the afternoon in question, when prisoner passed leading the dog in a string. The animal wore no collar. Witness asked him when he was going to bring the dog he had promised him, and prisoner replied that he would bring it the following Thursday. Eventually witness was persuaded by Thread- gold to give him a shilling on condition that prisoner left the dog. Mr. Fenwick (Chief Constable): Did you regard the dog as your property?—Witness: Well, he left it with me.—At this point Culshaw was again called, and he identi- fied the collar his dog wore from among three or four others found in prisoner's pockets.— Mr. Fenwick: Nobody makes any charge against him with regard to the other collars.— Prisoner was asked whether he had anything to say. He said I was in drink, and I thought it was my own dog—one I lost three months ago. tiaugticer.) lie pleaaea guilty to taking,' but not to stealing,' the dog, and was sentenced to a month's imprisonment.
