Hlsed Spotlight o Hunt; Two HeiiFinedllTO two unlicensed hunters from Lw Midway and Thurmont were |ied a total $170 for shooting five bbits by illegal spotlighting, out season, before Magistrate H. lese Shoemaker, Monday night. ey were, Thurston Smith, New lindsor and Sterling A. Seiss, Uirmont. .Said the magistrate, "This is one I our game laws, I have heard. Bab's do have a sporting chance in light but when a strong spotlight thrown in their races at night- l-ne and they are blinded, they le worse off than sitting ducks." · State Game Warden Benjamin F. liebus, Sr., said "will your honor l-open court and hear this case," I an attorney appeared late for le defendants and offered to for- lit collateral. -ied For Getaway I The chief district game official ntinued, "I would not be in favor _l the magistrate even accepting laximum fines forfeited on' all uee counts. There is more to pis case. They tried to run down ie of my uniformed deputies in laking their getaway and forced le off the road to avoid a collision Ihen I tried to stop them." Peoples Night Court had been losed shortly before the defend- lits made their offer to forfeit col- Iteral on warrants charging them fith illegally hunting rabbits by fcificial light, having five rabbits their possession during closed pason and hunting without li- pnses, about 11:15 p. m. November 3, on the Johnsville-New Midway bad near the George Etzler farm. Phebus said that his deputies, lurward W. Kettells and Glenn D. utts, with him on a patrol in that ·istrict. "were there because farm- Irs have been complaining of light-hunters shooting from the |ounty roads and injuring dairy attle More complaints on cows fcjt have been received than any Ither year in my experience." fcene Described The three game wardens testi- led they saw a car stop near the Iridge on the road described and powerful spotlight used. One of le occupants of the car got out nd shot, retrieving a kill and get- Ing back into the car. With this evidence the three wardens split up Butts went | foot to the road to stop the car hand signals Kettells by car prcled behind them to stop a re- Jreat in that direction. Phebus Inaintained the observation post |m a nearby hill. When the defendants' car raced It Kettells, Phebus went into ac- lion v.ith his machine. Kettells look the license number of the fact before he was picked up by 'hebus. A box containing five Illegally shot rabbits was hurled [i-om the pursued vehicle. Phebus Dipped to retrieve the evidence iich was produced in court last light. The fleeing car, later prov- |»d to belong to Seiss, got away. Later both defendants were (interviewed at or near their places of employment on farms.

Spotlight Found The spotlight used was found in the back of Seiss' car under a blanket and confiscated, along with an over under .410 x .22 gun allegedly use'd in the killings. Neither youth offered any defense. They were found guilty on all three charges and fined each, $15 for illegal possession (maximum is $20, plus $5 for each of the five rabbits) making a total of S40 for either of the pair on the first count. Maximum fine of 525 for using an illegal light, was assessed and the light ordered confiscated by the State, on the second count The small bore shotgun-rifle v. as returned. On the third count, hunting without a license, each defendant was found guilty and the mandatory fine of $20 was levied in each case but was "suspended."' State Keeps Rabbits Both fines were paid, but when the defendants asked for the return of the rabbits which the State had kept in deep-freeze, they were summarily informed these too are confiscated to be given to some charitable institution. In the only other case heard last night, Harry Kintz, Klineharts alley and William E. Whitesell, East Fifth street, described as "in and out of this court too often" were both sentenced to six months in the House of Correction, on conviction of "rolling" Richard Stine, Middletown, for $12, allegedly in the darkened basement of Kintz' home. The men were arrested on Stme's complaint about 3:30 Sunday morning. They had left a downtown restaurant together, went to Kintz' home and had a few drinks out of Stine's bottle. Sergt. Potts testified that when arrested, Kintz told investigators he had only 51-cents and permitted a search. Officers found a five-dollar bill in his shoe and traced his expenditures of several more dollars but could not confirm his statement that the money he had was loaned to him Saturday night by Lawrence Higgles. In sentencing the pair, the mag- istrate remarked, "There is no question in my mind from the testimony and your records but that you two collaborated in this crime which i* commonly known as "rolling" a person. Which one actually did take the money, I don't know. I am convinced there was a conspiracy between you and sentence you on conviction of larceny, to six months in the House of Correction in hopes that maybe the institution can cure your propensities for getting into increasingly serious affairs."
