According to the London papers, Hayes and a confederate were charged with stealing a tin dish valued at about 3 pence and a tart worth 1 or 2 pence from a confectioner’s shop, both items being admitted in evidence two months later at the trial. According to the witness at the trial, several of the officers had told him that the boys were “known as thieves for some time.” The court indicated that “they would take care to inquire about the prisoner’s character, and would punish him accordingly.
