ROBERT MARRIOTT . I am a cheesemonger , and live in Wilson-street, Finsbury . On the 18th of December, about four o'clock, a person asked me if I had lost a ham? I looked, and it was gone from the door. I went out, and saw the prisoner running with it under his arm. When I got within a few yards of him he threw it down. I secured him without losing sight of him. A stranger picked the ham up.
