H073/3; list of thefts from mail-coaches

  H073/3; these are two items from a list of thefts from mail-coaches, 1827-8.

As you read these sources look for:
(i) Is this crime the same as crimes committed for hundreds of years?
(ii) Is this crime just a new opportunity for an old crime?
(iii) Is this an entirely new crime?
In Source 4, look for the value of the items stolen and what the result of the case was.
