J. WOOLLER

Southport


About midnight, two months ago, the window of a Southport (Mr. J. Wooller) jeweller's shop was broken by a brick being thrown into it, and about £400 worth of watches, rings, &c, were stolen. As no clue could be obtained, the matter had been given up as hopeless, until one day last month, when a police constable named Allen pawned a gold watch, which was recognised as one of those stolen. Allen, a married man, was arrested, and was found to have in his possession some more of the property. A cook was a prominent figure in the case, and Allen made her a present of a gold watch and a ruby ring. He sold several articles to residents, but it is believed the greater portion of the property has been sent out of town. On the night of the robbery he was " on duty " in the street where the offence was committed.

CLARK & MORRIS

Church Street, Liverpool


Clark & Morris, described at the time as Silversmiths, and whose premises were located on the corner of Church Street and Tarleton Sreet, Liverpool, were noted as being victims of an extensive robbery that occurred over the weekend of 4th-5th January 1851. The loss was reported to be in the region of £1,800, a large sum at the time and an indicator of the perhaps large extent of this business.

L. BEAVER

Cross Street, Manchester


At the Manchester Police Court John Warren and Joseph Toner, were charged with burglariously entering the shop of Mr. L. Beaver, Jeweller, Cross Street, Manchester. A postman who was passing the shop early on Sunday, the 13th ult. heard a noise inside, and called the attention of the police, who quickly surrounded the premises, and then proceeded to effect an entrance. The prisoners attempted to escape by the roof, but were captured, and then a search of the premises was made. The police found that the burglars had effected an entrance through a side door by breaking two heavy locks. They had taken off a cast-iron door, secured by six heavy bars; then they had worked through a 14-inch brick wall. They found that Beaver's shop is lined with iron by trying to effect an entrance through the wall ; they therefore forced a door leading to a cellar underneath the shop of the next house, and so got into Beaver's shop by removing another door. In the front of the shop an aperture is left for the police to notice the interior, but this had been covered with a clock face. They had not been able to gain access to the safe, in which there was £16,000 worth of jewellery, before they were interrupted ; but a most complete and powerful set of burglars' tools were found on the premises. Inquiries have been made in various parts of the country as to the prisoners' antecedents, and replies have been received. The prisoners were committed to the assizes.

Mr. L. Beaver will doubtless congratulate himself on the strength and efficiency of his safes ; during the last twelvemonth, several cases of attempted burglaries have come under our own notice where the thieves had been similarly baffled. According to an experienced locksmith of our acquaintance, there is very little skeleton key work attempted just now ; but they rely on the more summary effect of the crow-bar. In this particular instance, it would appear that the police were somewhat at fault for not observing that the aperture was covered up, and therefore useless.

THOMAS SOWERBY

82, Lime Street, Liverpool


No less than nine boys, varying in age from twelve to fifteen, were recently apprehended for breaking into the shop of Thomas Sowerby, 82, Lime-street, Liverpool, and stealing therefrom five watches, several chains, and a number of other articles. It appears that an entrance was made by breaking the bars which protected the window. Two of the boys kept watch outside whilst the others committed the robberies.
