W. MARSHALL

High Street, Grantham


Provincial Shoplifting

On the afternoon of the 4th ult, W. Marshall, jeweler, of High-street, Grantham, received a visit from a respectably dressed woman, who asked him to go to Stoke to repair some clocks, which he promised to do. She then asked to see some rings, and whilst in the shop managed to gain possession of two of them without the jeweler knowing it. These she subsequently pawned through her mother. She was apprehended and remanded, pending other charges being prefered against her.
