Old Bailey on line

Date of Birth; 1801.

1835. MARY ARNOLD was indicted for stealing, on the 2nd of July , 1 sovereign, the money of John Vincent , from his person .

JOHN VINCENT. I am a labourer at Mr. Richmond’s brew-house. On the 2nd of July I left the brew-house, at half-past ten o’clock, and was going home; I saw the prisoner, who was a stranger to me - she said she wanted me for a few minutes; I said, “What do you want me for?” she slipped her hand into my right-hand trousers pocket, and took out a sovereign - I had not spoken three words to her; I felt her hand in my pocket, and as she was pulling it out I seized her arm - she slipped the money round to another girl behind; I know it had been safe not two minutes before - I then gave her in charge -4s. 41/2d. was found on her.

GEORGE FURLONG. I am a Police-officer. The prosecutor gave charge of the prisoner for taking a sovereign out of his pocket; she was trying to get from him.

Prisoner’s Defense. He was against the shop, and I was on the curb; I could not take it from him.

GUILTY . Aged 30. - Transported for Life .
