Oscar Carlson

Description

Name: Oscar Carlson Arrested for: Larceny Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 15 June 1903 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-19-Oscar Carlson The Shields Daily Gazette for 15 June 1903 reports that: "A Norwegian, named Oscar Carlsen, was charged with stealing a packet of tobacco valued 4.5d from the same shop [on the New Quay belonging to Francis Clark]. Sergt Proud stated he was at the tram accident on Saturday night and while he was attending to the injured people defendant went to the shop and commenced handling the goods. Witness pulled him away twice and the third time he took him into custody. Defendant then dropped the packet of tobacco behind his back. The Bench imposed a fine of 5s without costs". These images are a selection from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 in the collection of Tyne & Wear Archives (TWA ref DX1388/1). This set contains mugshots of boys and girls under the age of 21. This reflects the fact that until 1970 that was the legal age of majority in the UK.

Eilert Tiller, Norwegian sailor, arrested for breaking and entering

Description

Name: Eilert Tiller Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 5 December 1907 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-119-Eliert Tiller For an image of his accomplice Patrick Liljebald see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/25657821142/in/album-72157.... The Shields Daily News for 13 December 1907 reports: ?SEAFARING MEN SENT TO PRISON. Patrick Liljebald (35), described as a ship?s steward, of Gothenburg, and Eilert Tiller (20), a Norwegian sailor, were brought up on remand charged with breaking and entering on the 5th December a shop situate on the Union Quay, and stealing therefrom a quantity of cigarettes, tobacco etc, of the value of £1 4s 2d, the property of Messrs E.H. Smith and Co. The Chief Constable (Mr J.H. Huish) withdrew this charge and preferred one of simple larceny. Evidence was given to the effect that PC Armstrong, while on duty on the Union Quay, noticed that a window of the shop mentioned had been broken, and he in consequence kept observation upon the premises. Blowing his whistle and waving his lamp about he attracted the attention of a night watchman ? Lawrence Bonholm ? who came to his assistance. Leaving the latter outside, the officer entered the premises and found the two prisoners who tried to conceal themselves. He took them into custody and had them conveyed to the police station. On being charged with breaking and entering the premises, Liljebald said he had only gone there to get a sleep, while the other prisoner made no reply. They were both sent to prison for one month with hard labour.?
