BANK ROBBERY AT SOFALA. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 3 June 1868

BANK ROBBERY AT SOFALA.   At noon, on Monday last (says the Bathurst Times), Mr. Superintendent Lydiard, of the Western Police, received a telegram from Mr. Johnson, manager of the Bank of New South Wales at Sofala, with the information that the bank, that morning, had been robbed of £1692. Sergeant Casey, of the Sofala police (who had come to Bathurst to attend the Quarter Ses- sions), and Sergeant Garvey, of the Bathurst police, were at once dispatched to Sofala to endeavour to trace the robber. From what we can learn, it appears that the bank was closed at the usual hour on Saturday, and that   Monday was a bank holiday. Between seven and eight o'clock that morning, Mr. Johnson went into the bank for some purpose that does not transpire, and shortly after he went out of the office, down the street, and remained away about half-an-hour. During his absence he left the outer door open, the door leading into his own room being also incautiously left open ; t...
