Details:122. William Moore, overseer of the mines. Charged with stolen property in his possession. The Chief Constable stated - I received an information on Sunday that some of the property lately stolen from Mr. Henry Dangar was in the possession of Moore. I accordingly searched him and found the pair of worsted stockings now produced. I also searched his house but did not find anything that looked suspicious except a pair of duck trousers made in Kings canvas which I also brought away. Mr. Henry Dangar states.....I was robbed some time since of various articles of wearing apparel amongst which were some stockings. Those produced are of the same pattern with some I have by me. I have not any doubt but that they belong to me....The prisoner in his defence stated....I bought the stockings from James Usher for three shillings. I also got the trousers from John Thomas the sail maker. They are both free men and have lately been sent to Sydney....William Moore sentenced to sleep in barracks till further orders and to have his government man taken from him
