HARBOURING A DESERTER
Alice Anderton of the Coach and Horses, Percy Street, was charged
with harbouring a deserter. PC. Jones said that on the 13th June, he
went to the Coach and Horses to apprehend William Walker, a
deserter from the Army Hospital Corps, but was told by the defendant
that he wasn't there, but would be there at 8 o'clock that evening.
Insp. Wray said that he went there at 6.30pm and Walker's presence
was again denied. However, Insp. Wray went upstairs and found Walker
in bed, partly dressed, and arrested him.
Anderton claimed that she had denied the man's presence to the
Police Officers, because she wanted PC>Moorby to apprehend him,
and get the reward.
The case was adjourned in order to call PC. Moorby.

HARBOURING A DESERTER - continued:
When PC Jones was making his way to the Coach and Horses, he was
met by Moorby, who by this time had left the force, and who gave the
information to Jones, that he was already aware of. Insp. Wray went
WITH Moorby at 6.30pm on the13th June.
NB. When Moorby appeared in Court, he told the Magistrates that
he had been required to resign from the force. He admitted that he had
made an arrangement with Mrs. Anderton, by which she was to inform
him when she had deserters in her house, for by apprehending them he
received a sovereign reward.
Anderton was discharged.
