JAMES HEALE, GEORGE CHAPMAN, Theft > simple larceny, 1st December 1831.
361. JAMES HEALE and GEORGE CHAPMAN were indicted for stealing, on the 3rd of November , 1 handkerchief, value 2s. 6d. , the goods of Nicholas Brown .

ALICE BROWN . I am the wife of Nicholas Brown - I take in washing, and live in North Wharf-road, Paddington . On the 3rd of November, about three o’clock in the afternoon, I was at my window, and saw the prisoners go by together, and as they passed, Chapman put his hand through the palings, and took down a handkerchief, and the peg flew out - Heale was close to him; I followed them, and saw Heale putting something into his bosom -I said, “Give me the handkerchief,” but they got away too fast for me to follow them; I sent a lad after them, and they were taken.

WILLIAM TRENCH . I pursued the prisoner, and criedStop thief! I lost sight of them, but they were taken the same night.

RICHARD HANCOCK. I am a Police-officer. I saw the prisoner go past the prosecutor, but did not see them take any thing; the prosecutor gave me information; I described the prisoners to McLean.

Heale. You said it was not one of us. Witness. When I was fetched to the watch-house, you were laying down, and I did not know you, but I could swear to Chapman.

DUNCAN McLEAN . I am a Policeman. From the description given me by Hancock, I knew where to find the prisoners, and took them the same evening.

Chapman’s Defence. I was not near the place. I had not been a quarter of an hour with Heale when we were taken.

HEALE - GUILTY . Aged 18.


Transported for Seven Years .
