CHARGE OF LARCENY
For some months past the members of the Melbourne Bowling Club, inWindsor, have been suffering from the depredations of some individual who has been abstracting from a locked cash-box envelopes containing money due to the club. The assistance of the police was at length called in, and yesterday Detective Bear and Deverall arrested a young man of 21, named Thomas Anderson, on suspicion. Anderson, who has been employed in the club, eventually admitted the thefts, and explained that he would turn the cash-box upside down and shake it until the envelopes would drop through the slot. Andersonwas lodged in the Prahran Watch-house.
