"Thomas Green, court, Unett Street, and Robert Sweeney, Rea Street, were charged on suspicion with being concerned in an attempted burglary
at the works of Ingall, Parsons, Clive and Co., High Street, Bordesley. The prisoners, who are said to be notorious criminals. were suspected of being concerned in the
burglary at the shop of Mr. Roberts, High Street, Bordesley, a week ago. It will be remembered that the premises were forced open, and about £800. worth of watches
and jewellery were stolen. The thieves, who broke into the jeweller's shop first of all, it appeared, endeavoured to force open the gates leading to the works of
Ingall, Parsons, Clive, and Co., and two men were seen engaged in this operation by two youths. The police, consequently, resolved to arrest Green and Sweeney in
connection with the attempt to break open the gates, hoping that some clue would be obtained respecting the burglary. About one o'clock on Saturday morning Green,
who has been previously convicted, in the name of Walter Greening, was arrested in a court in Unett Street. Nothing was found on him of an incriminatory character, and
he made no reply to the charge. Detective Hefferman and Police Constable Long arrested Sweeney in Rea Street. He objected to be apprehended, and fought desperately to
get away. He bit the officers severely, and it was only after half an hour's struggle that he could be handcuffed. He was then taken to the police station. Nothing
was found on him, and he made no reply in answer to the charge. The prisoners were afterwards seen by the two youths mentioned above, but they failed to identify them.
No evidence, therefore, was offered, and the prisoners, who were defended by Mr. Dorsett [instructed by Mr. Peet], were discharged."
