Verdict: Guilty
Punishment: Transportation
264. JOHN HARTSHORN was indicted for stealing, on the 18th of December, three shirts, value 9 s.; three pair of drawers, value 5 s.; eight pair of stockings, value 8 s., and one handkerchief, value 6 d., the goods of Frederick Waugh , from the person of Sarah Hedley .
SECOND COUNT, the same, only stating them to be the property of Robert Hedley
SARAH HEDLEY. I am a laundress. On the 18th of December, about half-past nine o'clock at night, I was in High-street, St. Giles's , three doors on the other side of St. Giles's church, and had the articles stated in the indictment in a bundle. The prisoner stood at the end of Dudley-court. I saw him plainly by the light of the lamp before he took it. He came up the court, and snatched the bundle from my arm. I called out Watch! ran after him, lost sight of him at the end of the court, and did not see him until he was at the watch-house, but am sure he is the man.
JOHN FRENCH . I am a watchman, and heard the cry of Stop thief! in Dudley-court, and went towards the court; the prisoner ran out, with several people pursuing him - I saw the things on the pavement in Denmark-street. I passed them, and stopped him by the church - he lost one of his shoes in running. The prosecutrix came to the watch-house in about ten minutes, saw the prisoner with four or five others, and picked him out herself.
JOHN STEEL . I am a watchman. I was standing opposite Dudley-court, in Crown-street, and saw the prisoner come down the court with the bundle under his arm. I sprung my rattle and pursued. Somebody said,
"It is only fun, don't pursue him." I saw him throw the bundle down in Denmark-street, I picked it up. I am sure the prisoner is the man that I saw with the bundle.
(Property produced and sworn to.)
Prisoner's Defence. I was never in the court.
GUILTY . Aged 24.
Transported for Life .
