RICHARD LOVELL and JAMES EVERETT were indicted for stealing, on the 28th of March , 1 live tame rabbit, price 7s.; 2 live tame fowls, price 5s.; 1 cap, value 6d., and 8 eggs, value 6d. , the property of Thomas Chamberlain .
JOSEPH LEWIS (Policeman K 7.) On the 28th of March, about two o’clock in the morning, I heard a noise at the back of Providence-place, Bethnal-green - I got over a wall at the back of Chamberlain’s house, and found a cap with eight eggs in it - I looked into the privy, and found the two prisoners there with a live tame rabbit and two fowls in a bag; I took them to the station - Chamberlain saw the property next morning, and claimed it.
THOMAS CHAMBERLAIN . I live at No. 8, Providence-place - I know nothing of the prisoners. I lost this property from my premises on the 28th of March, and found them at the station-house, with this rabbit and fowls, which are mine - the cap belongs to the premises; the hen was setting on nine eggs.
Lovell’s Defence. I was at the play, and got over into these premises to sleep - I went into the privy; two men jumped over, we saw the eggs laying down, and put them into the cap.
