3 July 1931 MORNING BULLETIN (Rockhampton, Queensland)
... In the Police Court yesterday before the Police Magistrate (Mr. O. E. Power), Arnold James Amundsen (32) a native of New Zealand, was charged with stealing a Pontiac motor car, the property of the Valley Drive Yourself Service Limited, Brisbane, between June 17th and July 1st. Formal evidence of arrest was given by Plain Clothes Constable Jenks. On the application of Senior Sergeant Clare, who prosecuted, a remand was granted until to-day.
... When Arnold James Amundsen appeared in the Police Court yesterday, on remand on a charge of stealing a Pontiac motor car, the property of Drive Yourself Services Ltd., Brisbane, a further charge was preferred against him to which he pleaded guilty. It was that on June 20th, at Calliope, by falsely pretending to J. F. Mylne that a cheque for ?5, drawn on the Federal Deposit Bank and signed by Amundsen, was good and valid, he obtained from Mylne benzine and biscuits valued at ?1 5s 6d, and money amounting to £3 14s.
On this charge, Amundsen said he had nothing to say, but later asked that he be dealt with summarily.
Senior-sergeant Clare stated that on the morning of June 20th, Amundsen drove up to Mylne's store in a motor car and purchased benzine and biscuits. Amundsen tendered a cheque in payment and when told by Mylne that it was not his practice to cash cheques for strangers Amundsen produced what purported to be recommendations from people in Brisbane. On these recommendations Mylne cashed thc cheque and gave Amundsen ?3 14s change. He asked Mylne not to present the cheque until the following Wednesday. When presented it was returned from the bank marked "No account." Amundsen had two previous convictions. In Brisbane, on February 11th 1929, he was sentenced to 12 months' imprisonment on each of two charges, uttering a false document, and forgery. The sentences were concurrent.
Amundsen told Mr. O. E. Power (P.M.) that he had intended to make the cheque good. He had brought four men from Brisbane and they were to pay him, but he broke a spring in Rockhampton and his passengers left him and went on to Mackay.
... Arnold James Amundsen, remanded for sentence on a charge of having obtained £3 14s in cash and £1 5s 6d in goods from F. G. Mylne, Calliope, by falsely pretending that a cheque drawn on the Federal Deposit Bank, Brisbane, was good and valid, pleaded guilty to five fresh charges in the Police Court yesterday.
