One Tovey, who was in the Robbery being made an Evidence against the Prisoners, gave a full and large account of the whole matter of Fact; how that they met at one Doyley's in Black-Fryars, where they laid the Plot to go any where to find a Booty; so the first House they fell upon was Sir John Friend's, and that he sent his own share and Martin's by a Ticket-Porter to Sir John Friend after the Robbery was done. Martin denied the Fact, and said he knew nothing of it, behaving himself very morosely and turbulently in Court; for at his Arraignment he would not hold up his Hand till he was forced. Presly pretended that he was not in the Robbery, and called some Witnesses to prove that he was elsewhere; but Tovey positively swore that they were both there with him and Moor; so they were both found
