Roedd yn amlwg fod y Sarjant Davies wedi bod yn heddwas mewn nifer o ardaloedd led led Sir Frycheiniog, gan fod ei blant i gyd wedi cael eu geni mewn gwahanol rannau o'r sir.
Cafodd ei alw i'r achos ar yr 17eg Mehefin
1891, gan roi ei dystiolaeth i'r ynadon:
"This deponent Stephen Davies on his oath, saith as follows:-
I am a police sergeant in this Borough. From information received I visited the Priory Churchyard yesterday evening in company with the Superintendent and J J Frost. I there saw one headstone, pulled up and broken right across in a slanting direction: the stone was to the memory of John son of David Davies of this Town, died April 27th 1829 also David Davies. Another stone to the memory of James, son of Richard Davies was drawn up, also Richard Davies and Elizabeth his wife - these last 3 names were on one stone - a piece 9 inches long and 2 inches wide was chipped off. Another marble headstone was pulled down. I received a warrant later on for the apprehension of the prisoner charging him with damaging the tombstones on the 16th inst
.I read the warrant to him, he said I would have smashed the lot into smithereens if I had had a hammer, and I'll do it again; they have no business to put them on our ground. Prisoner was taken into custody and locked up. I apply for a remand to Monday next."
(Arwyddwyd) Stephen Davies
The foregoing deposition of Police Sergeant Stephen Davies was taken and sworn before me this eighteenth day of June 1891."
