CHAPTER OF THEFTS AT BARRY. At a special sitting of Penarth Police Court held on Saturday afternoon last-before Mr J. Sydney Batchelor and Colonel Thornley-several cases of robbery from the Barry district were heard. SHOPLIFTING BY AN EX-SOLDIER. The first charge was that of Joseph Sullivan, who was lately dimissed from the Army with ignominy. He was arrested on Friday afternoon for having stolen two pairs of boots from the doorway of the shop of Mr E. Bennett, Holton- road, Barry Docks. He was seen unhooking the boots from a nail, and was caught by a constable after an exciting chase down the street. Sullivan was fined 20s and costs, but being without the wherewithal, he was sent to prison for a month's hard labour. EXTRAORDINARY CONDUCT OF A BURGLAR. James Miller, a plumber, was placed in the dock charged with breaking and entering the house of Carl Wiberg, Kingsland-crescent, Barry Docks, on Friday night, and stealing therefrom a case containing jewellery value £ 5. belonging to Mr Wiberg; also a dressing case and a case of jewellery value £10, the property of Captain and Mrs Crosky, who were staying with Mr Wiberg. Miller's conduct was somewhat extraordinary. By some means he got into Wiberg's house, and having committed the robbery he coolly got into bed in Captain Crosky's room, and went to sleep. When found he had the stolen property in his possession.-The accused was committed for trial at the Quarter Sessions on both charges. CHARGED WITH ROBBING A SHOPKEEPER AND LODGER. Rowland Jones described himself as a collier. He was charged with theft of a purse containing £ 3 10s from the shop of Henry Pullen, restaurant- keeper, Plymouth-road, Barry Island. There was a second charge against him, that of stealing £1 Is from the pocket of Bertie Crid, a fellow- lodger, both thefts being alleged to be committed on Friday night. In both these instances a committal for trial at the Quarter Sessions was made.
