ROBBERY.
ROBBERY.
A smart arrest was effected by Constable W. M. Thomas, of Toora, during the week in connection with a daring robbery which was committed at Port Welshpool on Friday night last at Mr C. Anderson's business premises, whilst the occupiers were attending the Fisk Jubilee Singers concert at Welshpool. On their return Mrs Anderson found that an entrance had been forced into the shop, and on examination found that the till had been opened and a sum of 10 11s extracted. On Saturday morning Constable Thomas was in- formed of the burglary and visited the Port to investigate. Suspicion fell on an individual named Percy
Marmo, who had been working at the Port for some time, and he was interrogated by the police official, but he denied any guilt. It was, how- ever, ascertained by Const. Thomas the footprints of the accused exactly fitted an impression left outside the shop. Marmo, however, had no money in his possession, and was not detained by the constable. On Sunday Const. Thomas visited Welshpool and when seen by Marmo, the latter ran away from him. That day the suspect stopped at Welshpool and Const.
Thomas found in his room the paper bag which had contained the money. On Monday Marmo bought a ticket at Welshpool for Melbourne, but did not travel by the train. Constable Thomas watched his movements that, he was walking towards Melbourne. Next day Marmo stepped into the train at Fish Creek and was immediately arrested and charged with the theft by Const. Thomas, who then found over 5 in his possession. He was brought back to Foster and remanded to Melbourne, and will be tried at Foster on the 8th inst. It is expected that Marmo's arrest will clear up several mysterious robberies which occurred at Footscray some time ago, as he answers the description of the person wanted in connection with the crimes.

FOSTER POLICE COURT.
FOSTER POLICE COURT.
FRIDAY, OCT. 8th, 1915.
(Before Messrs. W. W. Harris. P.M., M. Lehen and M. Synan. J.P's).
Constable Thomas proceeded against Charles Green for hawking and selling goods (books) of an immoral character without a licence. In consequence of information received he interviewed Green at the Raillway Hotel, Toora, and found he was in possession of such books. Reginald E. Page gave evidence as to the purchasing of books (one of which was produced). Fined 5s, with 30s costs, in de fault 24 hours.
Theft.
Percy William Marmo was brought before the court by Cons. Thomas with having, on the 24th September last, broken into and abstracted from the till of Mrs. Chas. Anderson's store, at Port Welshpool, the sum of 10 while the occupants were attending an entertainment at Welshpool.
Inspector Fowler conducted the case for the Crown, while accused, who pleaded not guilty, was undefended.
After explaining the facts of the case for the prosecution Inspector Fowler called Louisa Anderson, owner and occupier of the business at Port Welsh pool, stated that she knew accused for the past eleven months, he having lived in a hut belonging to her within 200 yards of the store. Remmember edthe 24th September last, when accused came into the store at about 7 p.m., and purchased some butter and a loaf of bread, for which he said he would pay on the following Saturday. Always kept the money in the till, which she had opened in his (accused's) presence to get money for the concert. Had also handled the bag containing the 10, which was afterwards missing. Accused could see what was in the till from where he stood. The 10 comprised 6 1 notes, 10s note, sovereign, and 3 in silver. There was also other money in the till, including 10 in a canvas bag at the rear of the till, which could not have been noticed unless the till was pulled right out. After closing the store she left for Welshpool on the tram, there being nobody in charge during her absence. On their return at about 11.30 p.m. they enter ed the house from the back door, and having supper were surprised to see two girlfriends open and walk in through the front door, which aroused their suspicion, the door having been locked prior to their departure for Welshpool. She (witness) immediately inspected the till, and found the paper bag containing the 10 missing. The bag produced was similar to the one referred to. Did not authorise anyone to remove money from the till.
On being asked by the P.M. if he (accused) had any questions to ask the witness, he stated that he had walked out of the shop immediately after receiving the goods. This was all he had to state. George Anderson (sworn) said he resided at Port Welshpool. Had known accused for several months. Remembered the 24th Sept., when he came into the shop and purchased some cigarettes from him (witness). Had securely locked up the premises before leaving for Port Welshpool. Just prior to leaving had noticed accused in front of the shop. The windows were all fastened. FollowinLinghe appearance of visitors through the front door an inspection of the windows was made by him, when it was found that one had been forced open, and another one tampered with. In the morning he examined the yard, and found the articles by which he surmised the window had been opened, the baton and axe produced he identified as the same. Also found foot prints. On the 25th he summoned Cons. Thomas, who, on arrival, had brought accused round and compared his left, boot with the mark in the clay. Cons. Thomas re marked to accused, "That fits your boot," to which he replied "Yes, it fits it." The boot produced was the one tried.
Accused (to witness) denied using the words "Yes, it fits." Geo. Carter, fisherman, Port Welshpool, knew accused. On the 24th Sept. was at the Association reading room, when be noticed Marmo walk in at about 9 p.m., and again about 10 o'clock. Herbert Read, groom at Welsh pool Hotel, said on the 27th Sept. saw Marmo in bed at the hotel. Cons. Thomas called the day he (accused) left the hotel. Had shown the constable the room he (accused) had occupied, and had noticed the constable pick up a paper bag from the floor, which was not in the room the night previous.
George Holyoak, station master at Fish Creek, remembered the 28th Sept., when he had seen accused on the platform. Had served him with a second-class ticket to Melbourne, and received in payment a 10 note.
Constable Thomas brought accused into his office and searched him, when he found concealed in his shirt pocket six 1 notes, and in another pocket some loose silver. Had re turned the note to the constable in return for the ticket. The note produced appeared to be the same. Constable Thomas, on being examined, said from information received he journeyed to Port Welsh pool. On arriving at Anderson's he found the store had been broken into. Suspicions led to accused, whose boots compared with the marks outside the window, which were very plain and distinct. After a conversation he visited the hut occupied by Marmo, and made a thorough search of both him and the hut. Found about 6s in silver and a few coppers on him, which he said was all the money he had. Had received a written statement from him as to his movements the night previous. On the 27th Sept. saw accused at Welshpool, when he ran away. In the evening he obtained information that caused the issue of a warrant for his arrest. On the 28th he (witness) journeyed to Fish Creek, where he met accused in the act of proceeding to Melbourne. On being searched, the money as stated by witness Holyoak, was found on him, which, in answer to questions, accused said that he had received from Syd. Knight, and that when searched at Port Welshpool the money was deposited under a pillow of a bed he had occupied at his uncle's place at that place. He subsequently arrested him and locked him up.
This closed the evidence for the prosecution.
In reply to the P.M., accused pleaded not guilty, and gave evidence of his action from the time of the robbery to that of his arrest, but nothing relative to how he became of the money in his possession. On the night of the robbery, according to his evidence, he was mostly at the Association reading room, and in company with other folk. The day after he was at Welshpool, from which place he, although having purchased a railway ticket to Melbourne, walked to Fish Creek, remaining over night at Hoddle Range, thence to Fish Creek, where his arrest terminated his journey. In a brief summing up, the P.M. ordered accused to take his trial at the Court of General Sessions at Yarram on the 10th Nov. next. As the accused was on remand Continued on Page 3Scroll to previous page from a recent trial at the Footscray court for other charges bail could not be allowed, and he was removed to the cell.
A further charge with having in his possession a gold ring, the property of Miss Rose Peterson, taken from a vest pocket hanging in a house belonging to Oscar Olson at Port Welshpool, was also brought against accused, but the case was adjourned until the 12th Nov. at Foster, 19s being allowed for costs.
