Daring Jewellery Robbery
At about one o'clock on Tuesday morning Mr. Jackson, a large and fashionable jeweller, carrying on business in the High-street, Fareham, near Portsmouth, on looking out of his bedroom window, saw a man spring from the shop window with an armful of the costliest stock, amounting in value to £500. The thief made good his escape, although hit by a stool thrown by Mr. Jackson.
