GEORGE CARTER, Theft > simple larceny, 18th October 1832.

Offence: Theft > simple larceny
Verdict: Guilty
Punishment: Transportation
GEORGE CARTER was indicted for stealing, on the 12th of August, 1 jar, value 4d.; 36 pennies, and 84 halfpennies, the property of Leonard Wass.

SECOND COUNT, stating them to be the property of Leonard Wass and another.

ANN WASS. I live with my brother Leonard, in Wentworth-street ; he keeps a chandler’s-shop . On Sunday night, the 13th of August, I was in the house by myself, and was standing by the counter, between eleven and twelve o’clock, taking the copper out of the till, and putting it into the jar; a person came in, and took the jar and the money away - I only saw the shadow of one person - I did not know particularly who it was; I did not see the person - five men had been into the shop for some victuals, and my brother had desired them to go out, as they were rather noisy; I had counted 6s. 6d. into the jar in halfpence and pence - there was 3s. in pennies and 3s. 6d. in halfpennies; the prisoner is one of the men who had been in the shop before.

ANN SHEEN. I live in Wentworth-street. On the night of the 12th of August I was between my own door and Mr. Wass’ window - I saw the prisoner and four others go into Mr. Wass’ shop, and have some bread and meat; I watched them - after Mr. Wass had put up his shutters and gone down the street, the prisoner and three others came back to the shop; the prisoner stood by the door, and another went into the shop, brought out the jar, and gave it to the prisoner - I gave information, and the other man was transported last Session; I am quite sure of the prisoner’s person - I had known him twelve months.

JOHN WHITE (Police-constable H 180). I apprehended the prisoner.

GUILTY. Aged 24. - Transported for Seven Years.

1837: TOL Invermein.
