On the 7th of April, 1843, he was tried in the Wellington Supreme Court for breaking into Mr Lyon’s store and stealing tea, prints, ribbon, and sugar. He was transported to Van Diemen’s Land on the Portenia in 1843 under sentence of 10 years. While in the Wellington Gaol, he absconded and got across the Harbour before being apprehended by "friendly" Maori there.
