Detective Daniel Halse

Post by Karen on Tue 4 Jan 2011 - 1:42

STEALING TYPE.

At GUILDHALL today, Edward Simmons, 2, Argyle-road, Mile-end, a printer, was charged before Sir Robert W. Carden, M.P., with stealing a quantity of type from his masters, Messrs. Howard and Jones, printers, of St. Mary-axe. - Mr. Foss (Foss and Legge) prosecuted, and said the prisoner had been in the employ of the prosecutors for two years and a quarter, and until recently had borne a fair character. - Samuel Lythel, Detective-sergeant, said that on Saturday afternoon he and Detective Halse watched the prosecutors' premises and saw the prisoner come out. They followed him through several streets to 15, Church-street, Shoreditch, a marine store dealer's, which he entered, and where he placed on the counter a parcel of new type. He also took a second parcel from his pocket. As he did so, witness took hold of his hand, and took it from him. He found the two parcels contained type, which was nearly new. The wife of the marine store dealer said that she had bought type from the prisoner before, and produced a tin box containing 48 pounds of similar type, which she said she had bought from the prisoner. At the prisoner's lodgings about 10 1/4 pounds of type was found. The prisoner pleaded guilty. - Mr. Foss asked for the case to be dealt with summarily. - Sir R. Carden said he should be willing to do that, but then he could not get hold of the receiver. If he could only get hold of him he would have no objection to dispose of the case. - Mr. Foss said the marine store dealer would not escape, for he had made himself liable to several charges under the Police Act, for which he would be prosecuted. He kept no books, had bought metal in quantities smaller than the Act allowed, and other offences. Sir R.W. Carden said that if he understood that the receiver would be proceeded against for those offences he would deal with the case summarily. - Mr. Foss said he would. - Sir R.W. Carden then sentenced the prisoner to four months' hard labour.
