Police Arrested Four at “Drunken Party”
Police investigating at four o’clock in the morning thefts from a public house went to a house in Baillieston, where they found a “drunken party” in progress, and arrested four young men.
At Airdrie Sheriff Court to-day the four-three brothers and a young private in the R.A.S.C. home on leave- were charged with theft by house-breaking.
The accused- Patrick Quinn (31), 143 Claythorn Street, Glasgow; Robert Quinn (27), c/o 49 Crail Street, Glasgow; James S. Quinn (23), of no fixed abode; and Private William Fisher (18), R.A.S.C. all pled guilty to having, between October 16 and 17 broken into a public house at 38 Bredisholm Road, Baillieston, where they stole two bottles each of brandy, gin, and whisky and Glayva, 18 bottles of wine, a cigarette lighter, 400 cigarettes, and £12 8s in money.
In addition, James Quinn was charged with having between April 16 and 17 broken into the Rhinsdale Preserve Works, Baillieston, where it is alleged he stole seven bags of sugar valued at £43.
At first he admitted the offence, then changed his plea to one of not guilty, and his case was continued until November 13. Bail was refused.
Bottles of Liquor
After he was taken from the court the Procurator-Fiscal, Mr A. L. Nixon, outlined his case against the others. The police discovered that this public house had been broken into, and a constable on the beat remembered seeing the Quinn brothers loitering about the streets. A search warrant was obtained, and the police went to the parents’ home in Baillieston.
There they found “a drunken party was in progress.” Both the father and mother were smelling strongly of drink, and bottles of liquor were found by the police in odd corners.
The accused, James Quinn, was found to have pieces of slate and slate nails in his pocket. These apparently had come from the roof through which access had been gained. Patrick Quinn, when charged, replied-“I’ve been foolish.”
The police recovered from him £10 0s 8d. Robert was arrested on leaving the Glasgow Royal Infirmary, where he had gone to have a face injury attended. Apparently he had been engaged in a brawl with one of his brothers.
An agent who appeared for all the accused said that James quite frankly admitted that he had broken into the public house. The others had met him when he was making his way to his parents’ home and rather foolishly assisted him in carrying the stolen liquor. Patrick and Robert Quinn were each sent to prison for 30 days, William Fisher was fined £7, with the alternative of 30 days’ imprisonment, and allowed a fort-night to pay the fine.
