CHARLOTTE ANN ALVEY, Theft > pocketpicking, 10th September 1823.
1288. CHARLOTTE ANN ALVEY was indicted for stealing, on the 6th of September , from the person of John Holmes , seven sovereigns, and one Bank note , his property.
JOHN HOLMES . I am a sailor . On the night of the 6th of September. I met the prisoner at the Black Horse, public-house, Rosemary-lane ; she asked me to have something to drink - I gave her some rum and water, and stopped there for half an hour; I had a 5 l. note in my waistcoat pocket, and seven sovereigns in my side pocket. I do not know what time it was - I was drunk, but recollect what passed - she put her hand into my pocket, and took seven sovereigns - I felt her do it, and she took the 5 l. note from my waistcoat pocket; we were then in the street, we had gone outside the door - I took the 5 l. note out of her mouth - she ran away, I did not follow her; but in the morning, I found her drinking, and gave her in charge. I gave the note to the officer, and have not found the sovereigns.
THOMAS HARRISON . I am an officer. I was going out on the 7th of September; and at the watch-house, I found the prosecutor, the prisoner, and two more - he gave charge of her for robbing him of seven sovereigns, and a 5 l. note, and shewed me the note, saying he took it from her mouth; he was a little fresh then; I asked her what she did with the sovereigns; she said she did not take them; I asked her what she did with the note - she gave no answer.
Prisoner’s Defence. I met him about half past one o’clock at night; he said, he wanted a girl who lived in St. Catherine’s. I said, perhaps I might know her - I went to look for her - he had 5 s. or 6 s. worth of rum and water, and was very much in liquor.
