SHOPBREAKING AT STEVENSTON

Some time ago we reported that a father and son had been detected breaking into the premises of Mr Robert Hogarth, junior, grocer and spirit-dealer, Stevenston; that the son had been caught and duly punished; but that the father had “bolted,” and was at large. He had been so for a considerable period, but Mr Hogarth’s father having lately learned that he had been seen at Kilbirnie, proceeded thither with a police officer.

On their calling at the house of a relative of the party he was denied, but by importunity and threatening, they at last procured admittance.

After searching they discovered a bed warm as if some person had newly risen therefrom. On lifting the lid of a chest they found secreted there the flown bird, a man five feet eleven inches high. On getting their hero equipped he was safely lodged in jail.

They had been carrying on a practice for some time of entering the premises where no person slept at night, by means of skeleton keys, a large bunch of which was found in their dwelling.
