Theft of a Van-load of Barley

Post by Karen on Sun 23 Jan 2011 - 8:29

THAMES.

STEALING A VAN-LOAD OF BARLEY.

William John Thompson, a carman, of 22, Code-street, Spitalfields, was charged with being concerned with another man, not in custody, in stealing a horse, van, and 20 sacks of barley, value 65 pounds; a set of harness, a van sheet, and nose bag, the property of John Matthews, carman, of 53, New Church-street, Bermondsey. About six o'clock on Friday night the prosecutor's carman, a man named Magger, went into a coffee-house in the Commercial-road for a cup of coffee. When he came out he found his horse and van gone. About an hour afterwards, from information they had received, Inspector Reid and Serjeant Enright went to a house, 12, Pereira-street, Bethnal-green, and on the premises of a Mr. Manning they saw the prisoner in the act of emptying the barley from barrels into sacks. On the way to the station the prisoner said to Enright, "I wish I knew the man who has put me away." Mr. Lushington granted a remand.
