In October 1877 horses stolen some time before from James Whitty were found in Howlong. William Baumgarten was found guilty of stealing the horses from Whitty and others near Greta.

My friends William and Gustav Baumgarten, John Studders and I were charged with receiving the animals knowing that they had been stolen. While I knew Ned Kelly I was not involved in this matter and the case against me was adjourned. Was Ned Kelly the Thompson who the police could not find. Det Brown investigated us.
