Strand Betting Raid

Post by Karen on Mon 15 Aug 2011 - 11:19

STRAND BETTING RAID.

At Bow-street Lewis Brown, described as an electrician, and his son, both living at Conmore-road, Wimbledon, were charged with having been found on the premises of Parke's Hotel, Maiden-lane, Strand, yesterday afternoon for the purpose of betting with persons resorting thereto.
Detective-Inspector Stockley said that he and two other officers went into the restaurant, asked both the accused to turn out their pockets, and found on them betting slips relating to horses running that day, a starting-price book, a book of racing rules, and some money.
The son said, "I take slips, but I don't take money." The elder defendant said, "I only take the slips; the money is posted to me."
Mr. Herbert Muskett prosecuted for the Commissioner of Police. The defendants were remanded on bail.
