      From The Advertiser, Adelaide, Friday 9 November 1951 (via Trove, January 2012):
      PORT POLICE
      Before Mr. L. F. J. JOHNSTON
      Two Men Gaoled
      Two Victorian salesmen were each sent to gaol for six months on an admitted charge that at Outer Harbor on October 31 they were unlawfully in possession of a motor car suspected of having been stolen.
      The defendants were Anthony Thomas Palmer, 21, of Coventry street, South Melbourne, and John Kennedy Minter, 19, of the same address.
      When the hearing was resumed yesterday PCC H. C. Gill, who prosecuted, said that Palmer had told the police that after stealing the car himself in Ballarat on October 23, he and Minter had driven it to Adelaide, via Mount Gambier. They had been selling household goods on time payment on a commission basis.
      Palmer had said that he and Minter intended to keep the car for a while and then take it back to Melbourne, where it would have been dumped.
      According to Minter, he had met Palmer by appointment in Ballarat after the car had been stolen. Both had worked and boarded together in Melbourne.
      Mr. J. E. Kelly, for the defendants, gave evidence of previous good character and made sub missions for leniency.
      The magistrate said that the valuable car had done 1,250 miles since it was taken and it had also been considerably damaged.
