Capture of Counterfeiters

Post by Karen on Sun 23 Jan 2011 - 19:25



Henry Clements, 23, alias Goldsmith, alias Lewis, generally called "Mad Sailor"; John Friedman, of Osborn-street, Whitechapel, called "Narkey"; and Philip Cohen, of 8, Bell-lane, Spitalfields, generally called "Monkey," were brought up in custody of Detective-inspector E. Reid, H division, charged with passing counterfeit half-crowns in various parts of the metropolis. The arrests were effected by Inspector Reid on Friday night and that morning. The prisoners, each of whom had been many times convicted, had been in the habit of driving round London and getting rid of a large number of counterfeit half-crowns. In asking for a remand, Inspector Reid said on the next occasion persons would be present from all parts of London to identify the prisoners. Mr. Dickinson remanded the prisoners, and the prosecution will be undertaken by the Treasury. This makes seven arrests of counterfeiters in the district during the week.
