"At Aston Police Court, yesterday, before Messrs. J. Aston and A. Evans, John Ryan, a hawker, residing at Wolverhampton, was charged with stealing a horse and trap, the property of Charles Jacobs, Darwin Sreet, Birmingham. It will be in the recollection of our readers that the prisoner was apprehended the night of the 1st instant, at Aston, whilst drunk and incapable. He was brought up at the Erdington Police Court on the following day, and fined for that offence. Being unable to find the money, the prisoner was sent to prison for seven days. Whilst in gaol it was discovered that the horse and cart belonged to the prosecutor, and the prisoner was accordingly apprehended as soon as he left Warwick. Charles Jacobs, smith, Darwin Street, stated that on the 1st instant the prisoner came to him early in the day, and asked him for a quantity of trade articles. These not being ready, the prisoner was requested to wait, and whilst doing so had his dinner at the prosecutor's house. After dinner the parties took a drive in the vehicle, and called at several public-houses. Whilst drinking at the Bordesley Park Tavern, the prisoner suddenly decamped with the horse and cart. Police Constable Paine gave evidence to the fact that he found the prisoner drunk and incapable in Whitehead Street, Aston. After being duly cautioned, the prisoner stated that the prosecutor and himself were drunk at the time, and further that he had not the slightest intention of taking the trap away. He was committed to the Sessions."
