RECOVERY OF STOLEN PROPERTY.—
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.
He wished Makm to send him some handkerchiefs and stockings, and keep the rest for his
trouble; instead of which, he acquainted Mrs. Sharp, who found the property where the prisoner had described, of the value of about three pounds ten shillings.
