*** Jane Arnock , a French-woman, Indicted for stealing seven Guinea's and a Lewis in Gold, and 30 l. in Silver , being the Gold and Silver of John Philipin : also Anthony Tizier and Jane his Wife , Indicted as accessary with Jane Arnock, before and after the said Felony. The said John Philipin was a Lodger in the House where Jane Arnock lived as a Servant , using to make his Bed, but was supposed she had gotten a false Key to come into his Chamber when he was absent. It was observable, that the Night after she had taken the Money, and before he miss'd it, she broke his glass Window, and coming down Stairs told him there was Theives above, as she believ'd, to rob him; upon which going up Stairs with a Neighbour, found his Chest open, and Money gone; but the Windows being broken within side, it was evident, some in the House must do it: upon apprehending her she confess'd she had 15 l. of the said Money, which she likewise acknowledg'd in the Court, and was found Guilty , but Tizier and his Wife acquitted .
