Theft of bones - 1881

Birmingham Daily Post - January 6th 1881

On Tuesday at the Quarter Sessions, William Shelton (29) labourer, and George Turner (21) labourer, were indicted on the charge of stealing a quantity of bones, value 10/-, belonging to Tom Firr, at Quorndon on 16th ult. Turner now stated that on the day of the robbery he was at Loughborough Market, but the jury refused to believe it. Shelton offered no defence, and having been convicted before, he was sentenced to twelve months hard labour. Turner was committed to hard labour for three months.
