It appeared that the Prisoner was a Dancing-Master at the Play-House, and by that means came acquainted where the Goods lay. The Evidence declared, That the Prisoner and three more broke in at a Window, and that the Prisoner came to his Bedside, and said, Sirrah, Lie with your Face down upon the Bed, or I will shoot you through the Head: Then they went up and broke open the Wardrobe, and took the Goods away, and carried them to Buckridge-street in St. Giles's, and from thence to White-Friers: The Prisoner denied he Fact, and the Evidence was positive: Besides he had absented himself from his Bail, and fled.
