    ELIZA AMOS, 32, defendant name in trial of PHOEBE JONES, Theft > theft from a specified place; ELIZA AMOS, Theft > theft from a specified place, 12th September 1821.

    1166. PHOEBE JONES and ELIZA AMOS were indicted for stealing, on the 24th of Augest , seven dresses, value 3 l.; one shawl, value 2 s.; one scarf, value 2 s.; three caps, value 2 s.; one veil, value 1 s.; two handkerchiefs, value 1 s., and one spencer, value 1 s., the goods of Edward Wood , in his dwelling house .

    MARY WOOD . I am wife of Edward Wood , an ironmonger . We live in Tottenham-court-road , the articles stated in the indictment were in the back room on the first floor, except the caps, which were in the front room. I saw them safe at ten o'clock in the morning, on the 24th of August, and I missed them between two and three, and found them in pawn the same day. The prisoners are both strangers. We let out three apartments, but keep the first floor to ourselves. About twelve o'clock I went into the room, but did not discover the robbery till between three and four o'clock.

    CHARLES READ . I am an officer of Bow-street. On the 24th of August between eight and nine o'clock in the evening, I apprehended Amos at a house in Colvill-court, Charlotte-street, and asked her for the duplicates of the things she had pawned that day; she said she had none, but would give me some of things she had pawned on a former occasion. She was the only person in the room, and in the table drawer I found two caps, and under the bed, concealed behind a box, were a gown, a spencer, and a handkerchief. I then searched her person, and from under her stays, after great resistance, I found a pocket concealed, containing three duplicates, and then found another duplicate in the drawer. Wood claimed the things in pawn. Next morning I took Jones in Church-street, St. Giles's; she said she was at Amos's when she brought some things, but she knew nothing of them.

    GEORGE ROBINSON . I am an officer. I was with Read, his account is correct.

    THOMAS VINES . I belong to Bow-street, and was with Read and Robinson.

    JAMES WHITEHEAD . I am apprentice to Mr. Lorton, pawnbroker, Green-street, Leicester-square. I have two gowns and a scarf. I was present on the 24th of August, when the prisoners pawned them, in the name of Ann Carter , 25, Water-street, it was towards the evening. I do not know which pawned them.

    WALTER OWEN HALLS . I am a pawnbroker. On the 24th of August, Amos pawned two gowns for 16 s. in the name of Carter.

    HENRY BARRS . I am shopman to Mr. Dobree. A cap was pawned for 2 s. 6 d. I did not take it in.

    ROBERT LEWIS . I am shopman to Mr. Sampson, of Greek-street, Soho. About six o'clock in the evening Amos pawned a gown and scarf for 17 s. I am certain of her person. I told her I thought they did not belong to her; she said she brought them for a lady.

    (Property produced and sworn to.)

    AMOS'S Defence. I am guilty of pawning them, but not of knowing them to be stolen.

    JONES'S Defence. I was minding her room while she went out, she came in with a bundle, and I went to one pawnbroker's with her.

    AMOS - GUILTY . Aged 32.

    Of stealing to the value of 39 s. only.

    Transported for Seven Years .

    JONES - NOT GUILTY .

    604. ELIZABETH AMOS was indicted for stealing, on the 2d of May , one quilt, value 2 s.; one pelisse, value 2 s.; two shirts, value 1 s., and one handkerchief, value 6 d. , the goods of Richard Dimmock .
    JOSEPH GAZZAM . I am a dealer in earthenware , and live in Ivy-lane . I was sitting in the room on the first floor, and heard somebody going down stairs. I opened my door, and asked if it was a person belonging to the house? the answer was Yes, but Mrs. Dimmock opened her door, and said it was nobody belonging to the house. I followed the person, who was a female, down stairs - she had got out and turned the corner into the market. I then caught sight of her, and overtook her in Rose-street - she must have been the person. I found a large bundle in her lap containing the articles stated in the indictment. She begged for mercy, and said her friends were respectable - she had an infant with her.
