CHARLES PRINGLE, Theft > grand larceny, 1st December 1819.
43. CHARLES PRINGLE was indicted for stealing, on the 7th of November , four handkerchiefs, value 1 s. , the goods of Benjamin Acocks .
MARY ACOCKS . I am wife of Benjamin Acocks , who is a coal-merchant - I keep a ready-made linen warehouse in Newgate-street . On the 7th of November, about six o’clock in the evening, the prisoner came to the shop, and asked to look at some handkerchiefs which laid in the window. I handed them to him, he took them in his hand to look at them, said they were too dear, and wished for some at a lower price. I turned round to a glass case behind me, to reach some, he opened the street-door, and ran out with the handkerchiefs. I called the servant down, ran after him, and told a man to stop him - he was stopped. He dropped two handkerchiefs, and two others were found on him.
JOHN STEPHENS . I heard the cry of Stop thief! and saw the prisoner running, I followed and overtook him. I took two handkerchiefs out of his hand.
Prisoner. Q. Did you not say at the office that you took them out of my bosom - A. No; his hand was against his bosom.
(Property produced and sworn to.)
