|Schoolboys' caper: larceny of chocolates|
Among the other charges I spotted in a quick review of Prisoner Book 5 were Bigamy (John Brown, soldier who received 8 months imprionment), Palmistry (Christina Brophy, who was handed over to her husband), Cruelty to children (Thomas Darcy, who received 6 months hard labour) and Defence of the Realm (Constance Markieviez and Maud Gonne MacBride, among others, handed over for internment).
Each of the entries in the books records date and place of arrest (DMP station), name, age, occupation, address, alleged offence, name of magistrate/judge and, in most cases, the sentence or outcome of their hearing.
The four books are estimated to hold details of around 30,000 people. There are indexes for each volume, arranged by surname. They're not fully alphabetical, but the surnames are grouped according to their first letter, ie all surnames starting with 'S' are together.
Each book can be downloaded in pdf format and are dated as follows:
Prisoners book 1 : 1905-07 (105 Mb)
Prisoners book 3 : 1911-13 (123 Mb)
Prisoners book 4 : 1913-15 (108 Mb)
Prisoners book 5 : 1916-18 (109 Mb)
