--This case again came up before the Mayor
The charge, it will be remembered, is that Armistead
, while in the employ of Mr. W. S. Tupman
, of this city, stole from his store-room, to which he had free access, $250 worth of clothing.
Part of the clothing was subsequently found in the house of Wm. P. Armistead
The prisoner was arrested in Petersburg
, whither others of the stolen goods had been taken, and was brought back to this place last Saturday.
Witnesses were present from Petersburg
, whose testimony, added to that elicited from Mr. Tupman
and others, satisfied the court that Armistead
should be indicted for the offence; and, accordingly, he was remanded for safe keeping until the sitting of the Hustings Court in November next, when his trial will take place.
The witnesses were recognized to appear at the same time.
W. P. Armstrong
, particeps criminis,
in that he received and concealed a part of the stolen goods, was examined on this charge, and also remanded for indictment in the Hustings Court in November, when and where the witnesses against him were recognized to appear.
