Jim the Penman arrested
James Townsend Saward, better known as Jim the Penman, is found in a coffee shop near Oxford Street, London, by two City officers and arrested. Saward was a barrister-at-law, but also a forger of money orders and fencer of stolen goods. He and his accomplices helped with the disposal of the stolen gold bullion from the 1855 South Eastern Rail gold robbery. When his activities began to arouse suspicion in London, Saward tried to continue his illegal activity in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, but his accomplices were arrested and their confession led to the coffee shop arrest.
