ANN SHEPHERD, MARTHA OTTER, Theft > simple larceny, 29th November 1832.
78. ANN SHEPHERD and MARTHA OTTER were indicted for stealing, on the 5th of November , 3 pairs of shoes, value 7s. 6d. , the goods of Charles Dando .

JOHN MANSON . I live with my father, who is a gentleman’s servant. I was at Mr. Dando’s shop on the evening of the 5th of November; I was at the door, and saw the prisoners come there - they went into the shop, and as they came out Shepherd took one pair of shoes and Otter took two pairs: I caught Shepherd while she was putting them under her shawl, and called to Mr. Dando, but Otter got away.

CHARLES DANDO . I am master of the shop . I was called, and took Shepherd who had one pair of shoesunder her shawl - I saw Otter turning a corner; she got away then, but was taken next day.

WILLIAM ROGERS (Police-constable C 138). I took Shepherd, and found on her one pair of shoes.

WILLIAM CUNNINGHAM (Police-constable C 132). I took Otter the next day.

EDWIN SUFFELL . I am a pawnbroker. I have a pair of shoes, which was pawned by Otter on the 5th of November, for 1s. 6d.; she said her name was Mary Store, and that she brought them for her father.

JAMES ALDOUS . I am a pawnbroker. I have a pair of shoes, pawned by Otter on the 5th of November, for her mother, No. 21, St. Ann’s-court; I have known her mother two years.

Otter’s Defence. Shepherd asked me to go with her and buy a pair of shoes; she told me to wait at the top of the street - she brought two pairs, and told me to pawn them, and bring her the money; she then went, and got another pair, and the man came, and took her - I ran away, and told her mother.

SHEPHERD - GUILTY . Aged 17.
