2435. JAMES STOREY was indicted for stealing, on the 24th of August, 1 flageolet, value 10s.; the goods of John Wells.

JONATHAN WHEELER . I am a police sergeant. On the 24th of

August, I was passing John-street, Tottenham Court-road, and sat the prisoner with this flageolet under his jacket—I stopped him, and asked whose it was—he said, his father's, and he was going to take it to Clerkenwell, which was quite a different way to what he was going—I took him, and found on him this brass cock.

JOHN WELLS . I am a pawnbroker, and live in Adam's-row, Hampstead—this is my flageolet—I lost it on the 24th—I saw it safe at my stall outside my shop an hour before.

Prisoner. I found it lying down on the ground, and put it under my jacket.

GUILTY . Aged 18.— Confined One Month.
