HORSE STEALING

Nelson William Long (20), Jack Long (23) and Ernest Alfred Thorn were charged (1) with stealing a brown mare at Port Kembla, the property of Edwin Draper and valued at £5; (2) with stealing a pony gelding valued at £5 the property of Syd- ney Fryer, and (3) with stealing two bridles and two bridles valued at £3 the property of W. M. Swan.

Nelson Long and Thorn each pleaded guilty. The charges of stealing the saddles against both Nelson and Jack Long were withdrawn. Nelson Long said he took the horses from the Common as he thought no one owned them. He had heard a rumour that the animals were to be shot.

In answer to the police, Long said he had a bullet wound in the leg where he was shot by the police. He had fired at the police and they fired back. He was sentenced to five months imprisonment on each of the charges.

Constable Jones explained that Thorn and Nelson Long had taken the horses from the Port Kembla Common and had ridden to Gulgong. Thorn had stolen the saddles and had sold them to Nelson Long for 30/-.

Thorn was sentenced to six months on each of the first two charges and one month on the third. Jack Long pleaded not guilty to both charges. Sergeant Pye said the only evidence he could call in this case would be that of one of the accomplices, convicted the previous day.

Thorn, a labourer, of Pt. Kembla stated Jack Long was his nephew. On August 12th, he was at witness' house with his brother. Witness told Nelson Long he was a ——fool if he went over to get the horses. On the Saturday witness saw Long at Corrimal. Both brothers said they were going to Gulgong. Long was riding one of the horses from Port Kembla.

Sydney Fryer, labourer, of Wollongong, stated he reported his horse was missing about the end of August. The animal had been running at Port Kembla for about nine months. Edwin Henry Draper, labourer of Port Kembla, stated he reported his horse as missing on August 28th.

Long stated his brother had brought the horses out to Tarrawanna and asked him to feed them. He did this and on Saturday his brother came to the house. Had he (defendant known the horses were stolen he would have had nothing to do with them.

The first he knew that the horses were stolen was when they were arrested at Gulgong.

The S.M. — You had great faith in your young brother? Defendant: Well, I haven't been home for ten years, I've been away. The S.M. : Then you had better keep away from him until he turns over a new leaf. Anyway I have a doubt.

Defendant was discharged.
