867. ANN HALL was indicted for stealing, on the 25th of February, 3 half-crowns, 4 shillings, 1 sixpence, and 3 1/2 d. in copper, the monies of David Goddard, from his person.

DAVID GODDARD . I live in Duke-street, Lincoln's-inn-fields, and am a boot-maker. On the 25th of February, at half-past eleven o'clock at night, I was in the Edge ware-road—the prisoner came and spoke to me—I felt her hand in my waistcoat pocket, and I said, "You have picked my pocket"—she spoke to a person by her, and said, "This man says I have picked hit pocket"—I missed three half-crowns, four shillings, a sixpence, and some coppers—in going to the station-house she dropped something, which we took to be a half-crown, but could not find it.

WILLIAM CARTER (police-constable G 110.) About twelve o'clock I heard a cry—I went up, and found the prisoner and three more women—the prosecutor charged her with the loss of his money, but did not say How much—we went on towards Portman-street—in going along she dropped something, but I do not know what—I asked her at the station-house if she had any money—she said she had not.

SOPHIA NOBLE . I am the wife of James Noble, I searched the prisoner—I found. two half-crowns, one shilling, a sixpence, and 3 1/2 d., in her bosom.

Prisoner. She knows I was very much in liquor. Witness. It was not to be perceived—she put a sixpence into her mouth, and I thought something more—I wrenched my fingers in her mouth, and got out the sixpence.

Prisoners Defence. I met this man at half-past eleven o'clock with two more girls—he was in liquor, and said he had been robbed—I said, "Call the policeman"—this money was my own.

GUILTY . Aged 24.— Confined Six Months.
