On Monday 3rd February 1845 licensee John Self was charged with having received stolen property, a watch belonging to Mr. Coleman of All Saints. Mary Ann Fulcher, alias Polly White, was also charged in connection with robbery and both were committed.

On Tuesday 4th February 1845 it was heard that on Saturday 18th January Mr. Coleman left the CURRIERS ARMS, St Giles at about 10 in the evening. Walking through White Lion Street he was approached by Polly White who asked him to provide her a drink. He declined, but she followed him into Lion and Castle Yard where she fumbled him, snatched his pocket watch, and ran away. Although denying that she knew Mr. Coleman, he said that he had known of her for three years. The watch was discovered following a search of the WILLIAM IV and licensee John Self declined to say anything in his own defence.

On the 8th February 1845 it was reported that following long held suspicions, the police had searched a public house in Coburgh Street where they found a great deal of property, believed to be stolen. Chief Constable Mr. P. M. Yarrington said that police had recovered one filover shawl, scarlet and other silk fringe, several pieces of print, silk handkerchief, one gold mourning brooch from which the name had been removed from the back, a silver watch by makers Robert Bridges of London 9667 which had a double case, Arabic figures and gold hands. There were three gold seals and another three gold seals with keys attached, a large double-cased silver watch with nearly new hand and enamelled dial, with slender Roman figures, gold hand and a stout shank, No. 5162, plus an old fashioned double-case watch with Arabic figures and the maker's name James Williams of London.
