I was on duty on the morning of the 29th of March, in Plummer's-row, City-road , and saw the prisoner in company with another; they went to several shops, and then to the prosecutor's; they stood ten minutes in front of it, then the prisoner put his hand into the shop window, and took something out, which he put under his apron, and walked away - I suspected he had stolen something, and went after him; when he saw me he ran down Park-street - I called a man to stop him, and when I came up I found this flageolet under his apron - he said he found it under a stall.
