At a children’s court of Hertford Borough Sessions on Thursday, Marjorie Sibyl Shannon (13), of 97 Hindes Road, Harrow, was summoned for stealing a bicycle, valued at £2, the property of Mildred Starkiss, at Hertford, on October 19. Miss Starkiss, living at Stony Hills, said she left her bicycle in the yard adjoining Mr. Chard’s shop in Fore Street, where she works. Later in the day she missed it and saw it afterwards at the police station.
PC Freeman said he had a telephone message respecting a girl who was missing from Harrow. He saw the defendant at Hoddesdon wheeling the bicycle and detained her. He questioned her about the machine and she said she picked it up in the street at Hertford. The defendant was handed over to the care of her father.
