WHERE THIEVES PUT PLUNDER It is -well known to" the police that there are a number of ex-convicts who are literally rolling in riches and driving about London and the provinces today in their own motor cars and carnages, said a de- tective to Che writer the other day. The majority of these men are old embezzlers, and there seems to be little doubt that they are able to live well and keep going lavishly- furnished residences because the money they stole was hidden by them before being arrested and sent to prison, says a writer in Tit-Bits, j It may surprise you to know that thousands of .pounds worth of valu- able property looted by thieves from various sources lie buried in odd cor- ners of Britain, and will probably only be recovered by the men them- selves on their release. Cases are constantly occuring where an embez- after running off with a large sum of gold, refuses to divulge- the hiding place of his ill-gotten gains. He is sent to .prison, and the "loot" remains unrecovered. In nine cases out of ten the embezzler, finding ar- rest imminent, buries his stolen pro- perty and digs it up again when he comes out of prison. There is a man renting a big (house in a fashionable suburb who some years ago was a junior cashier in an American bank. One day he disap- peared, and with him the sum of Knowing too well that, sooner or later, he would b% hunted down by the police, he got several of Ihis friends to invest the money he had -embezzled in various shares. Although the American police made, exhaustive inquiries when arrested they failed to ascertain what had be- come of the plunder. The thief was sentenced to several years' imprison- ment, and wlien he was released he learned, to his surprise, that the com- panies and mines in which 'he had invested money had turned out so well 'that his shares were wprth a fortune. He sold out, and now en- joys nearly a quarter of a million of money. A man who was for many years an inmate of one of our prisons is now living in affluence in a town up North. He was imprisoned for embezzling from his em- ployers and ne declared at the trial that he -had spent every penny of it. For some time after Ms re- lease from jail he lived in a cheap lodging house at Hoxton, and then one day he declared that he had come into a fortune, a brother in Australia having died and left him some thous- ands. As a matter of fact, although the police had no proof, -he had re- covered the money which he had em- bezzled years before. A man of considerable means, now living in the States, served a term of imprisonment for forgery, having ob- tained by means of false cheques. Not a penny of the money was recovered by the police. During the forced confinement of the thief, his wife, in pursuance of a previously agreed plan, went out to service in a ;entleman's family. AS soon as the husband was liberated, however, his wife resigned her .position and the pair sailed immediately for the Col- onies. It ultimately came to that the money which had been !iby means of the forged -cheques had been buried under the flooring of a room in a Soho house. j Some fifteen years ago a Hindoo j merchant, who foad come to London i to make -purchases of gems, was rob- jbed of many thousands of pounds. The thieves carried their ill-gotten wealth to a cheap tenement in chapel, but, finding the police hot on tiheir track, they carried the "loot" one dark night to i The tracklayers mystery. up the i CARD OF THANKS.
