110,000 BURGLARY. Some time between midnight on Friday and daybreak on Saturday No. 3, Bancroft-road, Mile-end-road, was entered by burglars, and a safe rifled of bank notes and securities repre- senting some Y-10,000, the property of Mr. Hyman Myers, a retired cloth merchant and commission agent, who resides there with his married daughter, who keeps house for him. All the inmates of the house retired on Friday before midnight. On Saturday morning, when the servant came downstairs, she found her master's safe in the kitchen. The back had been taken off and it was empty. When the police arrived it was found that the burglars had entered the house through a barred window in the back area. One of the bars had been pulled out of its socket, and two others bent so that a man could pass through. Their booty secured, the burglars left the house by the way they had entered. Not a sound was heard during the night by any of the inmates of the house. Mr. Myers believes that he must have been drugged, but his daughter does not think this probable, as he is a heavy sleeper. The stolen property includes the following securities: New South Wales Government Bonds, about L2,000 Portsmouth Corporation Bonds, about £ 2,000; Bank of Australia Bonds, £ 800; Bournemouth Corpora- tion Bonds, £ 700 Consols, £ 600 Bank of New South Wales Bonds, £ 500; Hanley Corporation Bonds, £ 500; Hong Kong and Shanghai cou- pons, £ 300. Three Bank of England £ 100 notes were also taken.
