THEFT CHARGES

STOREMAN IN COURT On three charges of theft, a 41-year-old storeman (Mr. King) appeared in the Police Court this morning. The charges were in respect of sums of £382, £25 and £8, and related to the years 1938 and 1939. ' Asking for suppression of accused's name, counsel said his client was working among a number of men and his work would be prejudiced. Also he would be pleading not guilty and had a good defence. * Furthermore, accused's wife was working and a son was attending school. Counsel submitted it would be time enough for the name to be known when the case was heard at the Supreme Court, and when his defence could be put at the same time as the charges. The application was granted. A large number of witnesses were called by Detective-Sergeant P. Kearney, who prosecuted.
