*>— Dowlais Constable's Smart Capture: The ke*n perspicacity of a member of the Dowlais Division of the Borough Police Force, was responsible for a clever capture this week. While on duty about 7 o'clock on Monday even- ing, P.C. Stubbs (61) observed a. man wheeling a practically new bicycle up High-street. Cer- tain appcarance3 prompted the constable to stop the man, who, when questioned as to the machine, 6aid it was second-hand, and he had bought it for £5. His replies to other inquiries wore very .unsatisfactory, so the man was asked to accompany P.C. Stubbs to tho Police Station. There also he failed to give a satisfactory ac- count of the manner in which he obtained pos- session of the bicycle, but gave his name and occupation as that of William Williams, sinker, and having no fixed abode. P.S. Jones (19) thereupon communicated with Chief Constable Wilson at Merthyr, who immediately instituted inquiries, and found that the theft, between 1 and 2 p.m. that day from outside a publ-c house at Neath, of a bicycle, corresponding in every particular to that in the possession of Williams, had been reported to Cardiff, Newport, Swan- sea, etc.. but not to the Marthyr police. The man Williams was then charged upon suspicion of having stolen the machine, and detained in custody. On Tuesday morning, Williams con- fessed to having committed the theft, and was met at Merthyr by Sergt. John Davies, Neath, whither he wa$ conveyed by the 9.50 o'clock train, and later in the day was remanded on I the charge of stealing the bicycle, which is the property of Joseph Campbell, Briton Ferry. The alertness displayed by P.C. Stubbs in the I circumstances is deserving of the highest com- mendation, and subsequent events proved that his promptitude in acting as he did was thor- oughly warranted. f
