Theft of a trowel

John Bancroft, bricklayer's labourer, Church Lane, Quorn, was charged on remand with stealing from some works at the Falcon a trowel, valued at 3s, the property of Arthur Faulks.

PC Smith, who arrested the prisoner, said Bancroft first denied having taken the trowel, but at the police station he admitted taking it, say he was very sorry he did so. He could not say what made him do it, but he must have been in drink.

The Chairman remarked tha the prisoner was before the Court for a similar offence only last October, and, if he remembered right, he made the same kind of defence on that occasion. The Bench would give him once more chance; they would not send him to prison without the option of a fine. He would be fined 2, or 14 days' hard labour.
