SCARBOROUGH BANK ARREST. I ♦ PRISONER IN COURT. Before the Scarborough magistrates on Fri- day, Edward Crosby, 38, manager of the South Cliff branch of the York City and County Bank, appeared on bail, charged with wilfully, unlaw- fully, and with intent to defraud falsifying a counter book. It will be remembered that on Tuesday of last week Mr. Crosby was found unconscious at the bank, and on recovering sensibility he stated that he had been struck on the head with a stick by a man who entered the bank while he was busy with his books, and whom he was thus unable to describe. An investigation is stated to have shewn that notes to the value of some hundreds of pounds were missing. The accused, who appeared to be in a weak condition, was accompanied by his medical attendant. Henry Riches, chief constable, stated that he arrested the prisoner at the residence in Scarborough of the Rev. G. Hogarth, his father- in-law. After the warrant had been read to him the accused said, I have told Mr. Sayner (the manager of the chief Scarborough branch) everything I can say, and I cannot say any more. Shall I tell you what I told Mr. Sayner ? Without waiting for a reply, he proceeded, I own I took X100, but I repaid it." In response to the formal charge he only remarked," Right." The prisoner was remanded on bail, two sureties in JE250 each.
