GEORGE LUCAS, Theft > pocketpicking, 7th July 1819.
Offence: Theft > pocketpicking
Verdict: Guilty
Punishment: Transportation

GEORGE LUCAS was indicted for stealing, on the 8th of July, one handkerchief, value 2 s., the property of Francis Bunkin, from his person.

FRANCIS BUNKIN. I am a jeweller, and live in Charles-street, City-road. On the 8th of July, between three and four o’clock, I was in Cheapside, opposite Queen-street - a few people were detained by a waggon. I felt my handkerchief taken from pocket, and saw it in the prisoner’s hand; he dropped it, and I secured him. There were three others in company with him.

JOHN BROWN. I am a constable. I took the prisoner into custody in a shop in Cheapside. A person said in his presence, that he saw him take the handkerchief out - he denied it.

(Property produced and sworn to.)

Prisoner’s Defence. Two boys threw it down - the gentleman is mistaken.

GUILTY. Aged 24.

Transported for Life.
