Adam Tiler

An obsolete term for the accomplice of a pickpocket, who is given and escapes with the stolen goods. Here, "Adam" refers to the first man (as in the Garden of Eden), while "Tiler" is an obsolete slang term for a pickpocket. We have caught the pickpocket, but some Adam Tiler made off with the money.
