Old Bailey 14/1/1830: Simple Larceny
JAMES HAWES and HENRY GLASSOP were indicted for stealing, on the 15th of December , 5lbs. weight of beef, value 2s. 6d. , the goods of Henry Pluckrose .
HENRY PLUCKROSE . I am a butcher , and live in Brick-lane, Bethnal-green . On the 15th of December my man was gone backward to kill; I served a customer, and went to book the meat - I came out and missed a piece of beef; I called my man to mind the shop, and ran down Slater-street - I saw the two prisoners; Hawes had a bundle under his arm; I ran on the other side of the way, crossed, and met them - I laid my hand on Hawes, and said, “You have got a bit of meat of mine;” I called an officer, and gave him in charge - as soon as I had spoken to him Glassop ran off; I pursued him with Winter, and took him.
GEORGE SMITH . I was passing the street, and saw the two prisoners; Hawes had the bundle - the prosecutor spoke to him, and called out, “Hold this one;” I took him into a house, while the prosecutor pursued Glassop; when they came back I opened the bundle, which contained a piece of beef, weighing about 6 lbs.
Hawes’s Defence. On the 15th of December I went to my uncle’s, who is ill; as I went up Slater-street a man came and asked if I would have a bit of meat - I said Yes; I was going up the street, and the prosecutor came and took me.
Glassop’s Defence. The only reason I had for running away was, because I own I am not one of the best of characters - I had been up at Worship-street, and I thought I was known there.
HAWES - GUILTY . Aged 22.
GLASSOP - GUILTY . Aged 23.
Transported for Seven Years.
