28th December 1844


A robbery was committed at the shop of Mrs. Sharp, draper, &c., Mirfield. In October last. Henry Hargreaves, the person who committed the robbery, was sentenced to be transported for life, at the late Assizes. After his conviction he made known to a person of the name of Makin, who was in the same ward with himself, that a quantity of handkerchiefs, stockings, and shoes, the property of Mrs. Sharp, were lodged in a barn at Dalton.
