To Cause the Return of Stolen Goods (Spell)

From Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus, Joseph H. Peterson edition:

To Cause the Return of Stolen Goods.

Go early in the morning, ere the sun rises, to a juniper tree, and, at sunrise, bend it to the ground, and put a stone upon it. Under this stone and tree lay the skull of a criminal and speak: Juniper tree, I bend and press thee until the thief shall return N. N.'s stolen property to its place. + + + When the thief has returned the stolen booty, move the stone from whence you took it, and put the bush in its proper posiĀ­tion.

The grimoire Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus lists this spell.
