STEALING A COAT.

William Fisher, a labourer, and a native of Leeds, in Yorkshire, was charged with having stolen a coat, of the value of 1s., the property of Charles Carling, at Teynham, on the 16th inst.

Prosecutor said be was a labourer, and lived at the “Teynham Arms.” Between nine and ten o'clock on Monday night he left the coat in question in the tap room of the house whilst he went to the stable to make up the horse's bed. He returned about twenty minutes afterwards, and found that the coat was gone. The prisoner had been to the house sometimes; the last time he called was about a week ago.

Mary Ann Creed, wife of the landlord of the “Railway Inn,” Teynham, stated that prisoner had lodged at her house for several months. On Monday night, between ten and eleven o'clock, he came into the tap-room. Witness heard some of the men say “We are getting new clothes fast.” She observed that prisoner had a different coat on. He appeared sleepy, and did not say anything.

P.C. Ling said he apprehended the prisoner at the “Railway Inn,” between eleven and twelve on the previous night, having to call him out of bed. At first he said he did not know what witness wanted; afterwards he said he took the coat.

Remanded till the next Petty Sessions.
