"Shortly after twelve o'clock last night Police Constable Barrier, who was on duty in the district, saw a young man walk up to the
shop of Messrs. Schramm, in Dudley Street, and smash a large window with brickbat. He walked away in an unconcerned manner, but the officer quickly took him into
custody. He gave the name of John Ward, and said he had no fixed abode. He was brought before the Stipendiary at the Birmingham Police Court this morning, and evidence
was given that the damage done amounted to about £4. 15s. The prisoner denied the charge, and Barrier stated that he found pieces of brick in his pocket.
Prisoner: "What object would I have breaking a window? The Stipendiary: "What object have you in having a brick in your pocket?" The
Prisoner: "I may have a brick my pocket, but that does not say I am going to break a window with it." The accused was fined 10s., and ordered to pay
£4. 18s., damages and costs, or to go to gaol for a month."
