Dagger said it was a dinner plate, and said that he had been working at the pottery in Feeder Road.  Dagger showed him four plates, separated from each other by moist clay, and then suddenly he knocked them out of the policeman’s hand and ran away.  He was taken to Bedminster police station where another plate was found in his jacket pocket, and he then admitted stealing all of them.  A representative of Pountneys said that Dagger had always been a trusted servant, and they were prepared to take him back.  He was bound over to come up for judgement if he was called upon, and was discharged (Western Daily Press).
