William Carter , of St. Michael Cornhil , was indicted for feloniously stealing a Silver Taster, value 30 s. a Silver Strainer, value 12 s. a Silver Spoon value 8 s. and other Goods, in the Ware-house of William Blackham , the 7th of October last. The Prosecutor depos'd, that finding his Shop broke, he found a Drawer had been broken open, and an Iron Pin lying by, which could hardly have been found but by some that were acquainted with the Place; that thereupon he suspected the Prisoner, and upon searching his Lodgings, found part of the Goods. The Prisoner pleaded that he going by the Shop, saw the Door not fast, and so did take the Goods. The Fact being plain, the Jury found him guilty of the Indictment.
