HENRY REES

London


A jeweller named Henry Rees was found guilty at the Middlesex sessions on Monday of stealing jewellery valued at £50, the property of Charles Robertson, a page in the service of the Queen. It was stated that the prisoner obtained admission to the prosecutor’s rooms in Buckingham Palace on pretence of getting a clock to be repaired, and stole a sapphire ring, gold pin, and a pair of gold solitaires. On being arrested, he admitted the offence, and explained how he had disposed of the property. He was sentenced to six months’ hard labour.
