NETTING BEACONS RESERVOIR. Costiy Night Trip from Cefn Coed. At Brecon County Petty Sessions on Friday —before Mr. A. A. Mitchell (in the chair) and Captain Gray stone Alfred Stokes, of 17, ] Cefn Isaf, Cefn Coed, and Joseph Mainwaring, of 4, Pleasant Yiow, Cefn Coed, were charged by Mr. J. L. Wheatley, clerk to the Cardiff Corporation, with netting trout to the value of 15s. from the Beacons Reservoir on the 9th inst. Mr. F. W. Ensor, Cardiff, appeared to prose- cute, and the defendants pleaded guilty, Mainwaring doing it very effectively by placing his hand over his heart and saying On my conscience, sir, I plead guilty." Mr Ensor stated that at about 2 a.m. on Sunday, the 9th inst., in consequence of infor- mation, P.C. Price and the keeper of the reservoir were on duty on the main road at the top of the reservoir. They heard some .people walking through the water, and going to the spot found the two defendants, who, had evidently just come out of -the wrater, being wet up to their waists. They had with them poles and a net and a bag containing 19 trout, weighing about olbs. Both gave false names and addresses and when the policeman followed them with a view to checking the addresses they ran away. P.C. Charles Price gave evidence in support of this statement, and added that when defend- ants ran away he followed them and caught Stokes? w ho said the other man had fallen into the water, but no doubt had got out and that lie was about half-boozed and had a bottle of rum in his pocket. When witness told Stokes he would be reported, he replied Perhaps you will have to bring the papers to the Army." The Chairman said the Bench looked upon this as a serious case and the defendants would j be fined £ 5 each, including costs, and the net and poles would be confiscated.
