Thomas the Bushranger
Frank Thomas, who had grown up in Coorow, turned to the life of a bushranger during young adulthood. Over a number of periods he stole impressive amounts of food, supplies and horses from farms, homes and off trains. To the farmers of the North Midlands he was a constant nuisance while the women were unable to cope thinking he was behind every bush. To police he would later become an embarrassing problem after they repeatedly failed to capture him.
Items began going missing in about December 1919 but he managed to keep his identity a secret and elude police for almost twelve months. He was finally captured and sentenced to two years imprisonment, but following his release he returned and resumed operating locally as a bushranger. After weeks of tracking him all over Winchester and Coorow, and through the cold of winter, police finally captured him again in May 1922.
