ROBERT LOCKWOOD, Theft > simple larceny, 10th September 1829.
Fifth Middlesex Jury - Before Mr. Sergeant Arabin.

1565. ROBERT LOCKWOOD was indicted for stealing, on the 15th of August , 36 apples, value 1s. 6d., and 1 basket, value 3d. , the goods of Thomas Bowyer .

JAMES ASHTON . I live two doors form Mr. Bowyer’s shop. On the 15th of August I saw the prisoner and another person come to the shop, and take out a sieve of apples - I told Mr. Bowyers, and he followed; I had lost sight of the prisoner, but he was brought back within ten minutes - I know he is the person.

THOMAS BOWYER . I live in Ratcliffe-row, Bath-street , and am a green-grocer . I was informed of this circumstance, and the prisoner was pointed out to me - he ran up Bath-street, and I took him; he had nothing then - this basket was given to me in two or three minutes; I had not seen it thrown away - I saw it safe about twenty minutes before; the prisoner was a stranger to me.

CHARLES DOWNER . I keep an oyster-stand. The prisoner ran by my stall, and threw down this basket, which I took up and gave to the officer.

THOMAS BENNETT . I am an officer. I took the prisoner; this basket was given to me.

GUILTY . Aged 21.

Transported for Seven Years .
