MARTIN BULMER, Theft > pocketpicking, 16th September 1824.
1433. MARTIN BULMER was indicted for stealing on the 6th of September , a gold pin, value 10 s.; the property of Thomas Fox , from his person .

THOMAS FOX. I am a printer . On the 6th of September, about eight o’clock at night, I was at St. Bartholomew Fair ; the prisoner stood close at my side; I saw him snatch my gold pin out of my shirt, and hand it over to his companion, saying

“Here Jack.” I laid hold of him immediately, and asked him to give it me; but did not say what; he said he never saw it.

Cross-examined by MR. LAW. Q. Did you not accuse two or three others of it - A. No. My hands were confined, or I could have hundred him from taking it. I am certain it was him.

GUILTY. Aged 18.

The prisoner received an excellent character, and was recommended to mercy .

Transported for Seven Years .
