TILL ROBBERY
Henry Bamber, a scampish looking fellow,
was charged with having stolen 2s 6d from
the till at the STATION TAVERN beerhouse,
Fletchers' Road, on Tuesday afternoon.

Annie Hothersall, wife of the landlord (John
Hothersall), said that she caught the prisoner
with his hand in the drawer. He got away, but
afterwards apprehended by P.D. Challon.

He was sent to gaol for 1 calendar month
with hard labour.

It seems as though there might have been appeal here?
Possibly still open in 1917?
