Sheerness. Burglary.

About 2 o'clock on the morning of Thursday, the bar of the "Waterloo Inn," Minster was entered, and several bottles of spirits and wines, about a dozen silver spoons, large and small, an entire box of cigars, part of box, and 2s. 8d. in money abstracted, with which the thieves made off.

 

Kentish Gazette, 26 March 1850.

CRIMINAL COURT.

John Burton, 22, was indicted for uttering a counterfeit half crown, to John Cook, at Minster, Sheppy.

Mr. Deedes and Mr. Dawson appeared for the prosecution, and Mr. Addison, for the defence.

John Cook, grocer, deposed that on the evening of the 22nd of February, prisoner paid a half-crown for an ounce of tobacco.

Witness put the coin into the till, where there was no other half-crown, and gave him the change. Mr. Fairhall called on him, and he
then found that the coin was bad, and with Mr. Fairhall apprehended the prisoner.

Esther Fairhall, deposed that the prisoner came to her house, the "Waterloo Inn," and offered a half-crown in payment of a glass of gin; she suspected it was a bad one, and her husband having marked it, gave information to the last witness.

The husband corroborated the evidence.

William Baker, publican, Minster, deposed that the prisoner, on the same day, paid him for a glass of gin with a half-crown, which proved to be a bad one.

Mrs. Greenstreet, pastry-cook, Minster, deposed that the prisoner paid her a bad half-crown, for a penny tart.

Mr. Powel, inspector of the Mint, deposed to all the half-crowns produced being counterfeit.

Mr. Addison addressed the jury on behalf of the prisoner.

Verdict Guilty.— One year’s imprisonment.
