To Fasten a Thief upon your Estate (Spell)

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

To Fasten a Thief upon your Estate.

I, N. N. [here pronounce your name], can you pass over my estate whether you walk or ride; without the roof under the roof, if you are not able, so be you fixed to stand still, and count first all rain drops, all snow flakes, all the stars which move on the firmament, all the blades of green grass that groweth upon the earth, all grains of sand in the ocean, and all the springs that are beneath the earth. If you canĀ­not count all these things, you shall and must stand like a log, stand like a buck, and like a goat must look. Thus, Peter, bind; St. Peter, fasten with God's own hand, and ye thieves are fastened and affixed as long as it pleases me. In his wicked position, be the thief fixed to stand, fixed to the land, and now stand still, till Judas departs from hell. Judas dare not leave the lower region; hence the thief must quiet stand still, till I may with my own eyes and hand, see and feel that wicked wight; and bid him to depart with all his might. + + + Three times spoken.

Remember where thy possessions lay, and with the right finger or hand point to them. This obey.

To release: Without trouble to thee or me, depart from hence, in the name of the Evil One, without mirth or glee.

The grimoire Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus lists this spell.
