TRIED TO TRIP OFFICER. A story of a detective's exciting ex- perience with a prisoner whom he was taking into custody was related to the Swansea Bench on Wednesday, when Thomas Harry and Mary Elizabeth Bridle were brought up in custody and charged on remand with stealing a sum of money and several articles valued at £ 7, the pro- perty of John Jones, Gowerton. Detective Barry said that in consequence of information received he accosted the male prisoner, with whom was Bridle, in Wind-street, and told him he was a police officer. He asked Harry to come with him to the police station on suspicion of breaking and entering. Harry said, I'm not coming until I see your warrant." The detective replied that he had not got one, and Harry at once said, Well, I'm not coming." The both prisoners walked away, and went in the direction of High- street, the detective following at a dis- creet distance. When prisoners came near Kintzlt-Ian,e (which is the road leading to the Central Police Station), the detective again accosted Harry and said, I'm go- ing to take you into custody, and you had better come quietly." Prisoner replied, I'm not coming." The officer then got hold of him, but Harry made a dive for his legs and tried to trip him up. Detec- tive Barry, however, conveyed him to the Police Station P.S. Apsey, who received both prisoners into custody, said they admitted the charges. Prisoners were committed to take their trial at the next Quarter Sessions.
