ATTEMPTED BURGLARY. Smart Arrest at Pentypridd. Mr Win. Spickett, solicitor, Pentypridd, one of the ex-county councillors for the district, had an exciting adventure on Saturday night. It was after midnight sometime after he had gone to bed at his residence in Merthyr-road, when he heard a noise of someone attempting to force open a window or a door on the ground floor. Simultaneously the dog com- menced to bark furiously. Mr Spickett hastily jumped out of bed, and opening the bed- room window, saw two men running down the drive towards the road. Mr Spickett threatened to fire if they did not stop. P.O. Lewis (297), Norton Bridge, happened to be on the road, and hearing the noise ran to the spot, and saw the men running down the lawn in front. The officer gave chase, and after a short run, captured one of the men, who gave the name of Thomas James, a labourer, of 4, Police-row, Norton's Bridge. Mr Spickett identified the prisone as one of the men he had seen, but James, upon being charged at the police station with having been found upon enclosed premises with intent to commit a felony." stoutly denied the accusation, declaring he would rather "cut his throat thau do such thing." He was brought before an occasional court on Monday and remanded until Wednesday.
