ANN HALL, Theft > grand larceny, 7th July 1819.
1021. ANN HALL was indicted for stealing, on the 24th of June , 54 yards of cotton, value 1 l. 18 s. , the goods of William Pickett .

EDWARD PICKETT . I am shopman to Mr. William Pickett , who is a linen-draper , in St. John-street . On the 24th of June, about nine o’clock in the evening, the cotton hung at the door. I heard a cry of Stop thief! ran out, missed three pieces, and secured the prisoner with it - several yards were dragging on the ground.

THOMAS BILL. I am a patrol. I was coming on duty, heard the cry of Stop thief! ran out, and saw the prisoner running - she was stopped and dropped part of the linen, the other part was picked up. I found a towel on her, with a wet waistcoat wrapped in it, as if it had just come out of the washing-tub.

(Property produced and sworn to.)

GUILTY . Aged 27.

Transported for Seven Years .

First Middlesex Jury, before Mr. Recorder.
