WILLIAM DAWES.
Theft: grand larceny.
26th May 1819
Reference Number   t18190526-135
Verdict   Guilty
Sentence   Transportation

901. WILLIAM DAWES was indicted for stealing, on the 25th of May , one table-spoon, value 10 s. , the goods of Lepman Polack .

LEPMAN POLACK. I am a tailor , and live in Mansell-street, Goodman's-fields . On the 25th of May the prisoner came to my house, and asked for some clothes for Mr. Jacobs; my sister called me down - I told him to send Mr. Jacobs himself for them. About three-quarters of an hour after he was gone I received information, and then missed the table-spoon off the beaufet. I went to a coffee-shop in Church-street with an officer, took him into custody, and asked him for the spoon; he said he gave it to Jacobs - he then pulled it out of his breeches-pocket.

SAMUEL MILLER . I am an officer. I apprehended the prisoner, and saw him give the spoon to the prosecutor.

(Property produced and sworn to.)

GUILTY . Aged 26.

Transported for Seven Years .

First Middlesex Jury, before Mr. Recorder.
