GRAVE CHARGES AGAINST A YOUTH. ♦ ALLEGED DARING THEFTS. A rather sensational story was told by the Chief Constable (Mr. J. H. Laybourne) at the City Police Court yesterday (Tuesday) morning, when the magistrates on the bench were Messrs. J. R. Thomson (chairman) and Geo. Dutton. It was about a lad answering to the name of Frederick Rowlands, 15 years of age, who said he belonged to Massam, in Yorkshire, and now appeared in the dock on a charge of stealing a purse and 21s. from the dwelling-house of Ellen Newns, 3, Charlotte-street, Sealand-road, on the 22nd inst. Mr. Laybourne said prisoner came to Chester on Monday week and obtained lodgings in Cornwall-street, where he stole 5B. and cleared away. Then he went to Mrs. Huxley's house in River-view, Handbridge, and here stole some gold rings valued at 932. From this house he went to seek lodgings at Hoole, where he appropriated a cash box and a gold ring, while at Howson-terrace, Garden-lane, where he stayed for a short while by paying so much a week, another gold watch was missing. Saltney was also visited by this adventurous prisoner, and be secured lodgings under false pretences. Finally Rowlands took up his abode :temporarily at Ellen Newns's house, from which the purse and money already referred to was taken. At the latter place prisoner represented that he was a gilder's apprentice and was earning 15s. a week. He agreed to pay 12s. a week for his lodgings. The Chief Constable remarked that he thought prisoner had done enough during his short stay in Chester. The best place for him would be a reformatory. Detective Sergeant Crewe said he received prisoner into custody the previous night from the Hoole police, and found upon him JE1 Os. 5d., two gold rings, a watch, and a bunch of keys. He after- wards found the purse belonging to Ellen Newns in a ditch in Sealand-road on being told by Rowlands that it was there. Two postage stamps were in the purse. At first prisoner denied that he stole anything.-He was remanded for seven days.
