Friday 12 March 1886, The Mercury (Hobart)

The police and black trackers arrested Frost, alias Riley, early on Sunday morning, in his camp in a gorge on the Booroolong Mountains. A stolen horse and samples of gold and rubies were found in his possession. Riley has been identified as the man who robbed the mail at Kingston two years ago, and is believed to be the man who recently stuck up the Tamworth and Warialda mail.
