Pillar-Box Robberies. WELL-DRESSED THIEVES ESCAPE IN THE DARK. A daring robbery from pillar-boxes in, East Dulwich on Thursday night, and th3 escape from custody of the thieves, throws lisrht on the problem of the non-arrival of expected Christmas letters and cheques. Two well- dressed men were seen standing close to a pillar box as though posting letters. The policeman was walking past on the other side, when he saw that the strangers were robbing the mail. One held a long string attached to a weight with birdlime on it, and with this they were fishing for Christmas cheques and postal orders. They had already secured a large num- ber o, letters when the policeman ran across and surprised them. He seized both men, who made a desperate struggle, and the constable loudly blew his whistle for help. In the affray letters were fiung on the pathway. Both man finally es- caped from the policeman who grappled with them. A full description has been issued of the two thieves—both well-dressed men be- tween 30 and 40-who scaped in the darkness.
