I Theft of £ 154 I GIRL STEALS HER FATHER'S MONEY. A sixteen year old girl named Winnie James, 9 Luton terrace, Furnace, was charged at the Police Court this morn- ing with stealing a cash box containing £ 154 10s., the property of her father. Mr. Leslie Willi airs represented the defendant. *• John James, father of the defendant, stated that for the last six months his daughter had been living with him. He had a cash box in a drawer upstairs con- taining about £150. Oh the 27th of June he went up tolook for the box and found it had gone. He consequently gave information to the police. He did not wish to press the case and was willing to give her (the defendant) another chance. Det. Tom Davies stated that on the 4th inst. he received the defendant into custody from the Gorseinon Police. He received the followng property: one cash box, 129 £ 1 Treasury notes, 3 £5.notes, £ 1 10s. gold, and 3s. in silver. He charged her with stealing zCl54, the pro- j perty of her father. She replied "I took the cash box with the money. I only thought of taking a few notes and re- turning the box the following morning. The reason I took the money was I wanted to go away and could not agree with my sisters. I hope my father will give me a chance and put me in a shop so that I could come home every night. I have not spent much of the money,but have bought some clothing for myself." Mr. Leslie Williams: You recovered all the money except £5 14s. lid.—Yes. Defendant pleaded guilty. I The Pres. Mag. (Mr. Wm. David) to the defendant: We have heard the case. and in spite of all the favour we would like to show you we must take a very serious view of it. The -sum of money at stake is very large, but your solicitor has pleaded hard for you. On condition that you go to a home we are prepared to dismiss the case, but you will be bound over to be of good behaviur for 12 months, and must ant ver judgment if called up. Your fathedwill also have to act as surety in the sum of 925. Addressing the father of the defendant the Presiding Magistrate reprimanded him for placing the temptation in the way of his daughter. The country is in dire nded of money at the present time, and yet you keep allthis money in a box. You should put it in the bank or invest it in the new Victory Loan where you will obtain substantial interest on it.
