At Cheshunt Petty Sessions Frederick Jones, of Queen’s Road, Waltham Cross, was summoned for keeping a dog without a licence on July 5. The defendant did not appear. PC Brown stated that when he asked the defendant for his dog licence he produced a licence, which he tore up, and then slammed the door in the witness’s face. Acting Sergt. White said he saw the defendant and asked why he refused to give the Constable the particulars on the licence. He replied: ‘I was not going to ransack my boxes for the policeman. I tore the licence up.’ The torn licence was recovered from the garden next door to where the defendant lived, and found to have been taken out in 1913. Fined 15 shillings or 11 days.
