1923. ANN SOLOMONS was again indicted for a like offence, in receiving, on the 28th of August , 1 watch, value 5l., the goods of Robert Beauchamp , knowing it to have been stolen .

ROBERT BEAUCHAMP. I am a silversmith and pawnbroker , and live in High Holborn . On the 23d of December last a square of glass was cut out of my window - a watch and other property was stolen; I have not ascertained the quantity of the property stolen. I found a watch at Hatton-garden, which I knew - I had never parted with it.

BENJAMIN GRIFFIN . I am in Mr. Beauchamp's employ. I never sold this watch to any person.

HENRY HYDE . I was in Mr. Beanchamp's employ. I never parted with this watch.

THOMAS FOGG . I went with other officers to search the house. I came to a bureau or chest of drawers - the prisoner said, the whole of the property in those drawers belonged to her, and that she had packed it up to send to her husband; she opened the drawer, and Limbrick found this watch.(Property produced and sworn to.)

MR. BARRETT. The prisoner's husband was brought into custody in May.
