STOLE FROM EMPLOYER

Shipping Clerk for Krementz & Co., Newark, N. J., Admits Theft of Jewelry and Is Held for Grand Jury

Newark, N. J., Oct. 15.—Charged with the theft of jewelry valued at $5,000 from Krementz & Co., manufacturing jewelers, by whom he was employed, Hanibal Gonzales, 20 years old, was held in $5,000 bail for the grand jury by Judge Boettner in the First Precinct Court.

Gonzales fled to New York following his clean-up, and was safe from the police, according to the story he later told Carl Lester, of the Krementz concern, and later reiterated to the police. But his boarding house friend, who suggested the theft in the first place, double-crossed him and ran off with the loot. In the hope of getting this other fellow into the meshes of the law, Gonzales returned to Newark and made a clean breast of the whole affair, even though he knew that he would be punished by doing so.

Gonzales was employed in the shipping department of Krementz & Co. He had the confidence of his employers. One of his duties was to mail packages containing jewelry to those who had bought them. Most of the packages were registered.

In telling the story, Gonzales said that he had no thought of stealing until it was suggested to him by a friend at his boarding house. His first theft was a $20 piece of jewelry. Apparently he was not suspected. Other small thefts followed. Then, according to his story, his friend suggested a big clean-up, after which they would leave Newark.

About two weeks later he left for the post office with a large number of packages containing jewelry. Instead of going to the post office. however, he and his friend went to New York, where they hired a room.

When Gonzales did not show up at the Krementz office members of the firm began to get suspicious. Later, when the company received word that packages supposed to have been mailed had not been received, the shipping clerk was suspected and the police were notified.

In the meantime Gonzales's friend in New York disappeared with the stolen jewelry. He then decided to return to Newark, take whatever punishment was coming to him, with the hope that his "friend" could be located and punished.

At first the police did not arrest Gonzales, but kept him under surveillance, but when they were unable to get trace of the other man they decided to arrest Gonzales and prosecute him.
