ARREST OF A HORSE STEALER
Aaron Sherritt, who is most unfavorably known in these parts as a purloiner of horses and cattle belonging to other persons, and for which he has received sentences of various terms of imprisonment, appears to have continued to carry on his little game; for a short time back Mrs Byrne, of Sheep Station Creek (at which place Sherritt also resides, when not out on his periodical marauding expeditions) procured a warrant for his arrest, on the grounds that he had stolen a horse belonging to her.Aaron managed to evade the clutches of the myrmidons of the law until Monday afternoon, when Senior-constable Mullane came upon him near his home on the Sheep Station.He will be brought up this (Tuesday) morning at the Beechworth Police Court, when, in all probability, he will be remanded for trial for the collection of the necessary evidence.
