JAMES FEELEY

Sheffield


James Feeley, 20, a silversmith, living at 3, Duke Street, Park, was charged at Sheffield, with stealing two handkerchiefs, the property of Mr. Charles Henry Sharman, draper, of Broad Street, Park. About half-past nine o'clock on Saturday evening some handkerchiefs were stolen from the outside of the prosecutor's shop, and on Miss Campbell, an assistant, being informed of it, she went into the Green Man dramshop, where she saw the prisoner, whom she charged with the theft. He denied it and Miss Campbell, seeing one of the stolen handkerchiefs in his pocket, pulled it out, and made him accompany her out of the dramshop with the intention of going to the prosecutor. As they were on the way to the shop the prisoner struck her in the face and ran away. She ran after him, and as he fell she was enabled to catch him. He then struck her a second time, but she clung to him, and with the assistance of a man, he was given into the custody of Police-constable Cay.—The prisoner was fined 20s., including costs.

BURRELL & SONS Ltd.

High Street, Sheffield


IMPUDENT ROBBERY

JEWELLERY SHOP AT SHEFFIELD PLUNDERED


Between £350 and £400 worth of jewellery has been stolen from the shop of Messrs Burrell and Sons (Limited), jewellers, High-street, Sheffield. Three men, who are described as being of smart and gentlemanly appearance, were engaged in the transaction, the modus operandi adopted being an old and favourite one with thieves who devote their attention to this particular branch of their profession. About twelve noon on Friday two men visited the shop end informed Mr. P. T. Whiteley, assistant to Messrs. Burrell and Sons, who waited upon them, that they wished to purchase a valuable timepiece. After talking with Mr. Whiteley for a short time, they said they would call again at half past one. Tho men visited the shop again at the time mentioned, and asked the assistant to allow them to examine two timepieces which were placed in the window at the corner of George-street, Mr. Whiteley removed the timepieces from the window, and placed them on the counter for the inspection of the supposed customers, leaving the showcase of the window unfastened. After examining the timepiece the men said there was another timepiece in the window which had taken their fancy, and requested the assistant to go outside and they would point it out to him. Mr. Whiteley and the two men thereupon walked outside, where the assistant was engaged in conversation for about two minutes by the men, who pointed out and commented upon the beauties and peculiarities of the timepiece, which had, according to their story, excited their admiration. They did not decide to purchase it, however, but left Mr. Whiteley, after assuring him they would call again at six o'clock, when they would come to a decision. Upon the assistant re-entering the shop he discovered that two stands containing cases with rings, the whole of the total value, so far as has been ascertained at present, of between £350 and £400, had been emptied and taken away. The police ascertained afterwards that during the conversation a third man was seen to enter the shop and; come out again almost immediately, with a handkerchief, which evidently contained something, in his hand. The man, who was undoubtedly the confederate of the other two, turned up George-street, where he was lost sight of. The robbery was at once reported to the authorities, and Chief Detective-inspector Moody has the case in hand.
