554. PATRICK FREDRICK was indicted for stealing, on the 18th of December, 2 loaves of bread, value 7d., the goods of John Baker.

JOHN BAKER . I am a baker, and live at Woolwich. On the 18th of December I was sitting at tea—the prisoner came in, and took two loaves—I opened the parlour door—he said he would be in in a minute—in about two minutes he returned, and I saw him throw a black handkerchief over the loaves, and walk away—I went to my neighbour's, and saw the two loaves which the prisoner had taken, on the counter there—I waited there till he came in for them.

JOSEPH GILES . On the 18th of December the prisoner came into my house with two half-quartern loaves—he asked me to let him leave them on the counter—while he was gone the prosecutor came and claimed them.

DIXON EDWARDS (police-constable R 111.) I took the prisoner—he laid he did not intend to steal them.
