Extensive Robbery by a Servant.-George Mole, a warehouseman, in the employ of Mr. Eames, a rope and twine manufacturer, 190, High-street, Horough, was charged at the Southwark Police-court with stealing a large quantity of valuable property belonging to his master and Edmund Grove, a dealer in valuables, Charles Grove, and Ana Surtees, were charged with receiving most of the property, well knowing it to be stolen.—It appeared from the evi- dence of the prosecutor that the prisoner Mole had been some time in his ser /ice as warehouseman; and at times had sole charge of the stock in the Borough. For a long time past he had missed things from the warehouse, and found a mysterious diminution of his stock. On Thursday morning, when he went to busi- ness, he missed a bolt of canvas, and feeling satisfied that Mole must bo the thief, he called in a detective officer and gave him into custody. He was brought before his worship the same day, and remanded for a week to enable the police to trace hia accomplices Through the exertions of Sergeant Ham,45 P another detective officer, some of the property was traced to a beer-house at Nine Elms, and it being shown that Edmund Grove and the female prisoner had taken it there they were apprehended by Sergeant Ham on Friday. Acting upon farther information, the officer apprehended the other prisoner the same evening, and it was known that he had frequently been in posses- sion ofgooda similar to that belonging to the prose- otor. A short time ago he was charged at this court with having m his possession a piece of valuable can- vas. He was remanded to find the owner, and at the end of a week Edmund Grove came forward and swore that it was his property, and it was ordered to be given up to him. From the descriptions given of It the prosecutor had no doubt it was stolen from his stock.—After some further evidence the prisoners were remanded until Thursday next.
