Arnold John Hillbrick - Lumper Convicted

The West Australian (Perth, WA : 1879-1954), Wednesday 31 March 1948, page 16
WHARF PILLAGING. LUMPER CONVICTED. Three Months' Gaol. "Pillaging from the wharves has got to stop," said Mr F. M. Read, SM, in Fremantle Police Court yesterday when he sentenced Arnold John Hillbrick (44), lumper, to three months' gaol on each of two charges of stealing and receiving and unlawful possession. The sentences were to be served concurrently. In evidence Plainclothes Constable G. Johnston said that on September 1 last the USN stores' authorities had reported the theft of a pair of binoculars, valued at ?33, from the cargo of a ship discharging at Fremantle. Yesterday a search had been made of Hillbrick's home and the binoculars were found on his dressing-table. A further search revealed two one-gallon tins of paint, an alarm clock, a breast drill and three packets of vulcanising patches, reasonably suspected of having been stolen. The alarm clock was one of 300 which had been stolen from the wharf some months ago. Hillbrick said that the binoculars had been loaned to him yesterday, that he had bought the alarm clock and the vulcanising patches in a hotel and that he had found the paint "lying about on the wharf," and carried it away. He did not know how the drill got into his shed. Inspector G. Findlay prosecuted.
