CHARLES COHEN

300, High Street, Connah's Quay


DARING BURGLARY AT CONNAH'S QUAY

A daring burglary was perpetrated in Connah's Quay in the early hours of Sunday morning at the lock-up shop of Mr. Charles Cohen, jeweller and silversmith, of 300, High-street. It seems that the thieves - for it is clearly evident that there was more than one participating in the scheme - at first proceeded to the Quay wharf, where they broke open a cabin to procure iron crowbars. They also took the precaution to place several planks across a small stream which runs at the back of Mr. Cohen's shop, which would enable them to escape by crossing over the London and North-Western Railway lines. They entered the shop by forcibly breaking a strong padlock and night-latch. Once inside, they helped themselves to goods to the value of £300 or £400, the spoil including a large quantity of valuable diamonds, gold bangles, rings, watches, &c. The shop is only situated a few yards away from the Police Station.

Alteration to business Premises

Mr H. Reading, jeweller and silversmith, has entrusted some extensive alterations to his business premises to a Birmingham firm, Mr John Mason, to whom the highest praise must be given for the excellent workmanship. Llandudno is noted for its excellent business premises, and this last addition is by no means the least important, and will considerably enchance the value of the surrounding property.
