Ellen Leavy alias Burns, arrested for stealing clothes

Description

Name: Ellen Leavy alias Burns Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 5 March 1906 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-39-Ellen Leavy AKA Burns For an image of her accomplice (and daughter), Rose Sparrow, see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/16888885997/in/album-72157.... The Shields Daily News for 12 March 1906 reports: ?SHOP-DOOR ROBBERIES AT NORTH SHIELDS. MOTHER AND DAUGHTER SENT TO PRISON. At North Shields Police Court today Ellen Leavey (46), 8 Barrington Lane and Rose Sparrow (26), Park Street, South Shields, mother and daughter, were charged on remand with having, on the 3rd March, stolen from the shop door of No. 96 Bedford Street, a child?s dress, valued at 6s 11d, or with receiving the same, well knowing it to have been stolen. An assistant with the prosecutrix (Miss M.A. Hogg), a draper, said she missed the dress and gave information to the police. Inspector Thornton said that he arrested the prisoner Sparrow in Barrington Street, South Shields and charged her with the theft and she replied that she was so drunk that she knew nothing about it. PC Graham said he arrested Leavey in the back lane of Sibthorpe Street, she then having the dress in her possession. He charged her and she made no reply. They were further charged on the same date with having stolen seven blouses valued at 13s 8d from the shop door of Mr Thos. Heslop, draper, Saville Street. Prosecutor said that at 3.20 pm, from what he was told, he followed the prisoners down Rudyard Street back lane and found the seven blouses and two pairs of boots under the shawl of the younger prisoner. The elder woman had also two pairs of boots. He detained Leavey until the arrival of the police, but Sparrow bolted. Bridget Leavey, a child of 10 and a daughter and sister of the prisoners, who was with them, said she saw Rosie steal the articles and give them to her mother to run way with. Prisoners were also charged with having stolen four pairs of boots, valued at 16s 10d, from the shop door of Messrs Stead and Simpson, 2 Saville Stret, on the 3rd inst. and further with having stolen a shawl, valued at 3s, from the shop door of Margaret Armstrong on the 3rd inst. Similar evidence was given and upon being formally charged Leavey pleaded not guilty and Sparrow admitted the thefts and said her mother had nothing to do with them. She asked to be leniently dealt with. She had taken to drink in consequence of her husband having neglected her and if she was given one more chance she would keep off the drink and never enter the town again. The magistrate committed them to prison for 7 days in each case, one month in all. The Chairman (Ald Collins), after giving the decision, said the tradesmen were very much to blame for hanging goods outside the door. If they insisted on hanging goods outside, they must have someone to watch them. The Chief Constable said they were indebted to Mr Heslop for the arrest of the prisoners?.

Thomas Dodds, labourer, arrested for robbery

Description

Name: Thomas Dodds Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 3 October 1914 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-256-Thomas Dodds For an image of his accomplice Mark Schidlossky see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/21412004993/in/dateposted/. The Shields Daily News for 5 October 1914 reports: ?GOING THROUGH SEAMAN?S POCKETS. ONE MONTH FOR THIEVES AT NO. SHIELDS. Today at North Shields, Mark Schidlossky, seaman, Russia and Thomas Dodds, labourer, South Shields, were charged with stealing 5s from the person of James McLeod on the New Quay. McLeod said he was proceeding to his ship, which was lying at Smith?s Dock, when he was accosted by two men, whom he now recognised. They pushed him up against the wall and took everything from his pockets. John Michael Graham, Lawson Street, said he saw the two men holding the prosecutor and going through his pockets. PC Pallister said the Russian said in answer to the charge ?I got no money? and the other man made no reply. The first prisoner had 2s 10d and the other 1s 2d in their possession. The Bench committed the defendants to prison for one month each?. These images are taken from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 (TWAM ref. DX1388/1). This set is our selection of the best mugshots taken during the First World War. They have been chosen because of the sharpness and general quality of the images. The album doesn?t record the details of each prisoner?s crimes, just their names and dates of arrest. In order to discover the stories behind the mugshots, staff from Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums visited North Shields Local Studies Library where they carefully searched through microfilm copies of the ?Shields Daily News? looking for newspaper reports of the court cases. The newspaper reports have been transcribed and added below each mugshot. Combining these two separate records gives us a fascinating insight into life on the Home Front during the First World War. These images document the lives of people of different ages and backgrounds, both civilians and soldiers. Our purpose here is not to judge them but simply to reflect the realities of their time.

They said they would show him and they took him to a house and as he was about to go in Casey struck him in the face, blackening his right eye, and Melia got him by the neck and took his money out of his pocket after which they made off. Further evidence having been given by two women, who witnessed the assault and robbery, and Detective Sergt. Scougal, who arrested them, the accused were formally charged and pleaded not guilty. Previous convictions were put in against both prisoners and the magistrates sent them to prison for a month?. As this report indicates it certainly wasn?t Melia?s first brush with the law. The Shields Daily News for 6 February 1905 reports: ?AN UNMITIGATED SHAMELESS BLACKGUARD. EXEMPLARY PUNISHMENT. At North Shields Police Court today, Thomas Melia (29), Causey Bank, was charged with living upon the proceeds of the prostitution of Bridget Lamb, between Oct 1st and Jan 31st. Evidence having been given, the Chairman (Mr T. Young) said the accused was the most unmitigated, shameless blackguard that had ever been brought before them and he would have to go to prison for 3 months with hard labour?.
