    • Dundee, Perth and Forfar People's Journal - Saturday 24 August 1861
      Page 3 - Shopbreaking - On Friday night week or Saturday morning, the bakehouse in Exchange Street, occupied by Mr David Hume, baker, Shore Terrace, was broken into, and a quantity of wheat flour was stolen. The thieves, it is thought, had gained admittance by breaking a pane of glass in one of the windows. On Saturday, John Coullie and William Smith, Overgate, and Jean Wanless or Macdonald, Seagate, were apprehended for the theft, with an alternative charge against a third prisoner of reset.
      Separate article, same page:
      At the Police Court on Monday before Provost Jobson, John Coolie, William Smith, and Jane Wanless or M'Donald were charged with theft by means of housebreaking, aggravated against Coolie by eight previous convictions and against Smith by one. The charge against the woman was an alternative one of reset. Coolie did not make his appearance. The offence was committed on the premises of Mr David Hume, baker, Exchange Street, which the prisoners had entered on Friday last by means of the window, and from which they stole a quantity of wheat flour, weighing about 84 lbs. They were remitted to the Fiscal.

      Dundee, Perth and Forfar People's Journal - 21 Sept 1861
      The Late Theft of Flour from a Bakehouse in Shore Terrace - On Monday at the Police Court, John Cowley (eight times previously convicted) was charged with being one of the parties implicated in the theft by housebreaking of 84 lbs of flour from the bakehouse in Shore Terrace, occupied by Mr Hume, on the 16th of August last. He was remitted to the Fiscal. There were two others - Wm. Smith and Jane Wanless - apprehended at the time for the theft, but the prisoner was only caught a few days ago.

      [Jean Wanless McDonald lived on Seagate in 1862 per a child's birth record, and in Meal's Wynd in the 1861 census. She is the only person who fits the location mentioned in newspaper. Since she was a shopkeeper, perhaps she was hoping to sell the flour in her own shop and make a bit of money from the theft. I have not yet found any disposition of the case in the newspapers online.]
