Two Rolls of Lead Stolen
Two Rolls of Lead Stolen. SENSATIONAL MUNITION ROBBEIRY. The Carmarthenshire Quarter Sessions were held at the Carmarthen Guildhall on Friday the 5th inst. The magistrates present were: Mr Dudl ev W i 11 i a Ti is D r u mm o n d (chairman). Mr E. Milner Jones .vice-chairman). Colonel Uoyd Harries, Mr W. Powell JeSreys. Mr H. L. Puxley, Mr Dan Williams, Mr T. Jo-nes, Mr John Lewis (iMavor of Carmarthen), Mr Dd. W illiams. Mr Thomas Lewis (Brynglas), Mr Morgan Jones, Mr Wm. Tliomas. Mr I'. Roberts (Llandovery), Mr T. E. Brigstooke, Mr L. X. Powell, Mr Henry Herbert, Mr Arthur Morgan, Mr H. E. Biagdon Richards, Mr T. Griffiths, and Major Dowdeswell. David John Williams, formerly a traffic superintendent to a munition firm, and Joseph Morell Baous (37), ironmonger, were jointly charged with either stealing or receiving be- tween the 10th April and 6th May, two rolls j of lead, value £ 53 7s 3d, the property of the Great Western Railway Co. They plaa-d xl not guilty. Mr Martay Samson (instructed by Mr T. R. Ludford. Llanelly) prosecuted. Mr W. Llewelyn Williams. K.C., M.P., and Mr N. H. Thomas (instructed by Mr W. Davies, Llanelly) defended. Mr M art ay Samson, opening the ease, said the lead. which was consigned to a local firm, readied another firm's siding. Williams, who was a traffic manager in the employ of that firm, instead of leaving the rolis at the base until he had made enquiries, wrongly sent them to the defendant Bacus. and it. was alleged that the two men were acting together in that way to steal the lead, which was de- livered at Bacus' premises. W. H. Morris. G.W.R. detective, said e interviewed W illiams at Hereford with regard to the roils on November 21st. Williams in a statement said, "I remrmbpr telling Mr Bacus that there were two rolls without a claimant for them, and as far as I can remember Mr Belcus Luad it up for me if there is no claimant for it.' After it ha.d been loaded up I made a consignment note for the rolls to go to Pembrey at Mr Bacus' request I am sorry now I had anything to do with him. He has made a tool of me, hut that is not he only thing he is mixed up with." He ni.so saw Bacus. and he said "lruth will stand. 1 bought it off Williams. He told me it was rr» above board. I had no use for lead of that kind. That is why ] paid so little for it. I suppose 1 must suffer for it." Witness added chat before making this statement Bacus told him he had paid t22 for the lead. David John Williams, giving evidence oil his own behalf, said he was a married man now iiv'ng at Loughor. He stated that when Jus attention was called to the lead at the works there was no identification marks of any kinl on the rolls. He made every effort to trace the owner. He casually mentioued to Bacus that he had found tlio ipad at the works, till 0 had failed to find any owner for it. Bacus then said, "If there is no owner you can send it up to me at Burry Port.' That was done. He had no intention of stealing it. Mr Thomas: Were you paid anything for n by Bacus?—Ncf. The arrangement arrived at was that he was not to use it or dispose of it until the works had been completed, for fear a claimant would arise for it. and in that case it was to be returned to the rightful owner. Cross-examined: He never thought of mak- ing inquiry of the Great- Western Railway about the lead, and he said nothing to his superior as to its being found. He denied that he was paid £ 22 by Bacus. He disputed som of the alleged admissions in Detective Morris statement. He never said Bacus made a too! of him" by not seeing that the lead wa* given up to the railway company immediately it wa,s found it belonged to them, as arranged. He denied saying it was not the only tiling j Bacus was mixed up in. I Joseph M. Bacus said he was one of the directors of the Pembrey Construction Co. Williams offered him the lead for £30. lie refused to give that, and eventually made in offer of £22. Williams told him he was trying to sell the lead for a sub-contractor, who ha 1 too much for the job on hand. The rolls were delivered at his premises by the Great Western Company. He paid Williams after delivery. Mr Llewelyn W illiams Had you any idea at that time that the lead was stolen? —No, not in the least. As far as yon knew. Williams was a most respectabie man?—Yes. Was there any concealment on your part from first to last Absolutely none. Both men were found guilty, and each sen- tenced to six months' imprisonment. ANOTHER CASE. David Davies and Joliii Bacus. Burry Port, wore jointly charged with .stealing and receiv- ing six ingots of block tin, value £ 13. the pro- perty of a Pembrey firm. Mr Mariav Samson who prosecuted, stated that the articles were missed from a truck consigned to the firm be- tween 2Gh Novemer. 1915, and 2nd December, 191.3, and were not traced until a year after- wards. Three of the articles were subse- qucntly found in Davies's garden and two
