When a lift became jammed between the first and second floors at the "Shalimar Hotel" on Wednesday evening, Dover Fire Brigade were called to release the woman occupant. This they did in a few minutes by winding down the lift by hand.

WAITRESS STOLE £45 RING.

A 20 year old girl, Maria Kotwica, who had been employed as a waitress at a local hotel, appeared before Dover magistrates on Monday and admitted stealing a £45 diamond and pearl ring, the property of one of the guests.

Inspector Piddock told the Bench that a guest at the Shalimar hotel lost her engagement ring between April 7th and 11th and reported the loss to the proprietress and the Police. Between February and June 27th defendant was employed at the hotel as a waitress, taking up employment at Kingsdown in July. As the result of what was described as “an unusual occurrence” her employer phoned the Shalimar. On July 9th Det-Con Dolphin saw defendant and questioned her about another matter. She said she had lost the ring and he told her it answered the description of one which had been stolen and he had reason to believe it was still in her possession. She told him it was a ring which her mother had given her, but later admitted she had found it in the hotel bathroom and kept it. The ring was subsequently recovered from some of her effects left with her parents.

Defendant also admitted, and asked the Bench to take into consideration, two other offences of stealing a rope of pearls and a gold wristlet watch, valued at £9, and an opal brooch.

After she had promised that she would never do anything like that again, and would always hand over anything which she found, the Chairman (Mr. W. Hollis) told her she would be dismissed under the Probation of Offenders Act and bound over for six months in her own recognisance of £5.

 

Further details hopefully to follow.
