Another Chapter In the Bicycle Steal?
The preliminary hearing in the
case against Seymour and Cannon
for buying a stolen bicycle from
Richard Toung, was held in Florence
Friday. R. D. Epps, Esq., appeared
for the prosecution. A strong ease
vas made out against Seymour and
he was bound over for trial at the
lext term of the Court of General
Sessions. There was not sufficient
evidence to hold Cannon and he was
dismissed on the motion of Mr.
Epps. Mr. Epps was accompanied
by Messrs. H. La, Tisdale, Bruce Ly
nam and S. W. Rumph, who were
witnesses for the State.
Mr. Epps also succeeded in recov?
ering several of the wheels for
which he took out claim and delivery |
proceedings last week. Mr. Tisdale
improved the opportunity to locate
two more stolen wheels, which were
recovered. It was a rainy day and
not many wheels were out on the
stree t, so Mr. Tisdale did not have a
favorable opportunity to see the
wheels In use in Florence. It would
be a good Idea for those who lost
wheels and have not yet recovered
them to employ Mr. Tisdale to scout
around Florence a few more days.
