Just the one instance of this found at present from the Assizes in Maidstone concerning a Writ Capias.

In the common law legal systems, capias ad respondendum (Latin: "that you may capture [him] in order for him to reply") is or was a writ issued by a court to the sheriff of a particular county to bring the defendant, having failed to appear, to answer a civil action against him.

Unfortunately I have no idea what his crime was.
