WILLIAM WAINWRIGHT . I am a constable of Hatton-garden. On the 22d of July, about six o'clock in the evening, I saw the prisoner by John Hibbert 's shop, in Little Gray's Inn-lane ; he was standing close to the door. I saw him pull something down, and walk fast away; I pursued him and asked what he had got - he said, nothing. Upon searching under his coat, I found a gown and shirt - he said he found them; he had not a farthing about him, and said distress drove him to do it.
GUILTY . Aged 60.
Confined Two Months .
Second Middlesex Jury, before Mr. Justice Richardson.
