936. JAMES ROE was indicted for stealing, on the 15th of February, 3 shawls, value 5s., the goods of Martha Lamb and another.

CHARLES HOOD . I live with Mrs. Martha Lamb, and another, pawnbrokers in Stanhope-street, St. Clement Danes. On the 15th of February, about three o'clock, I was in the shop, and heard something pulled down—I went out—a person opposite told me something—I went to the end of the street, up another street—I there found the prisoner, with these shawls, which are my employers', under his arm.

Cross-examined by MR. BODKIN. Q. These were exposed outside the house? A. Yes, on the door-post—it is a corner shop—the prisoner said he picked them up.

GUILTY . Aged 18.— Confined Fourteen Days.

(The prisoner's father promised to provide for him.)
