4th July 1816: Benjamin Badder & John Slater are committed to Leicester Gaol for the 'Loughborough Job'

On Thursday 4th July 1816 Benjamin Badder and John Slater were both committed to Leicester Gaol, charged under suspicion of being involved in the 'Loughborough Job' five days earlier.

Both men had been featured in numerous reports sent to the Town Clerk of Nottingham for some time, with the latest one suggesting they knew and were familiar with the men already arrested for the raid.

The arrest of the two men was reported in the Derby Mercury of 11th July 1816 & the Leicester Chronicle of 6th July 1816.
