The Shields Daily News for 15 February 1906 reports: "LARCENY OF BOOTS AT NORTH SHIELDS. TWO WOMEN SENT TO PRISON At the North Shields Police Court this morning before Dr Peart and Mr J. B. Williamson, Elsie Newlands (22) and Margaret Harker, alias Carr (28), of no fixed abode, were severally charged with stealing, on the 11th ult, from a shop door, situate at 25 Saville Street West, two pairs of boots of the value of 13s 10d, the property of the Realization Boot Company. The manager of the prosecutor's shop stated that on the 18th ult, about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, he observed the two pair of blutcher boots hanging outside the door. At 5 o'clock the same afternoon witness missed the boots, which he valued at 13s 10d. The pair of boots produced by the police was one of the pairs taken from the shop door. George Stewart, manager for Mr C. D. Merkel, pawnbroker, Clive Street, said the woman Newlands came to his master's place of business and offered a new pair of boots in pledge. Observing that they had not been worn, and his suspicions being aroused, he questioned the woman as to where she got them. She said they belonged to her friend's husband and witness told her to go and bring the friend in. Newlands then left the shop and later returned with the other prisoner and a man. The latter two bore out Newlands' story, but witness did not believe them, and declining to advance anything upon the boots detained them and subsequently gave information to the police. PC Radcliffe. a plain clothes officer, deposed to going to Stockton and receiving the first prisoner - Newlands - into custody. On charging her with the offence she replied, "I only tried to pledge the boots for the other woman." That morning witness proceeded to Durham and apprehended the other woman on her release from gaol there, and bringing her to North Shields placed her alongside Newlands and then jointly charged them with the offence. Newlands said "No, we are not guilty of that, are we?" The other replying, "No, we are not." The accused had been acting together at Stockton, and lived together in common lodging houses at North Shields. The Chief Constable (Mr John H Huish) said Newlands made her first appearance before the magistrates as far as he knew, but belonged to a bad school. The other woman made her 41st appearance, having been convicted at Stockton, Middlesbrough, South Shields and Newcastle for various offences. Newlands was sent to prison for 14 days and Harker for one month, both with hard labour."

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?.

James George Chase, munitions worker, arrested for obtaining money by false pretences

Description

Name: James G. Chase Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Arrested on: 22 January 1916 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-264-James G Chase The Shields Daily News for 28 January 1916 reports: ?FALSE PRETENCES CASE AT NORTH SHIELDS. At North Shields today, James George Chase (23), a munition worker, residing at Lynn Villa, Billy Mill, was brought up on remand, charged with having unlawfully obtained by false pretences, from Joseph Emery, the sum of 20, with intent to cheat and defraud, between Dec. 13th and Jan. 17th. Joseph Emery stated in May last he became acquainted with the defendant. During the latter part of that month the defendant told him something about an estate in Australia, valued at 70,000. About the 17th December, witness received a letter, which was supposed to have come from a detective at Scotland Yard, and his wife received a wire for 10 to be sent to the defendant in London, and witness sent it. On the 10th inst. the defendant returned from London and handed witness a sealed envelope. He opened it and found it contained two documents. After reading them, defendant asked is he was satisfied and he said it seemed to be alright. On the 17th inst. the defendant asked for another 10 and witness gave it to him. On the 21st inst. witness communicated with the police and on the 22nd obtained a warrant for the defendant?s arrest. Det. Radcliffe stated that on the 22nd inst. he arrested the defendant in Saville Street, and brought him to the Central Police Station. He read the warrant over and defendant replied ?I can?t say anything until I have seen Mr Emery?. Afterwards he said there was no truth in the statement regarding the fortune. When charged this morning he replied ?I admit everything: I know I have done wrong?. Defendant pleaded guilty and had nothing to say. Mr Emery, recalled, said he had not believed half the defendant?s statements from the first. The defendant had said that a young man had to go with him to Australia as a bodyguard to bring the money back. The defendant was committed to prison for one month in the second division.? 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.

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.
