TIHE appellant was on Ist March, 1956, fined 10, and in default of payment sentenced to undergo

stores, proceeded tc the storeroom of the department to check the stores. When they were through,
the appellant and hain went to the cold storage department and Gooding went elsewhere. Gooding,
appellant and Bain met later and walked towards the electricity department; thereafter Gooding left
for his office while appellant remained outside of the storeroom conversing with Mr. Scott, the chief
.engineer of the electricity department. Scott lett; appellant then told Bain he wanted to check
something in the storeroom without stating what it was; Bain opened the storeroom door which was
locked with a Yale lock and entered the storeroom with appellant. A Mr. Glean then arrived and
asked Bain to weigh a vehicle for h;m. Appellant was within hearing. Bain then asked appellant to
hold on" for a few minutes until he had weighed this vehicle. Bain left but was not away long on
his return to the storeroom, he found the storeroom door locked and appellant gone. The storeroom
is on the ground floor of a building and the electricity office is on the first floor of that building but
access to the office is independent and by a flight of stairs entirely outside of the building. Bain went
upstairs to the electricity office where he found Scott and appellant. Scott had a water heater in his
hand and he handed the water heater to Bain. Bain in the course of his evidence said ; I then went
up to the office. 1 met Mr. Scott at the door of Mr. Grant's work-shop. I saw Mr. Scott with an
instrument in his hards which I recognize as the water heater. (Water heater shown to witness).
This is the heater. Mr. Scott was angry. He asked where I came from. He spoke in the presence
of Mr. Buxo; I told him where I came from. He told me he caught Mr. Buxo going away with the
heater. He told me he called him two or three times Ibefore he stopped Mr. Buxo. He told me that
Mr. Buxo told him it was an electrical gadget. Mr. Buxo said nothing in reply to what Mr. Scott
said. Mr. Scott then handed me the water heater with the papr to return same to the storeroom
which I did. This is the water he-tter and paper. I now produce same marked Exiibit "G.A.B.1".
After I had transferred the articles to the storeroom, Mr. Buxo came and spoke to me. He told me,
he took the heater to be tested. I know the value of the heater. It is valued for $57.31. When
Mr. Buxo told me that le wanted to check something in the storeroom I did not know what he wanted
to check; he did not tell me what it is he wanted to check. At the time Mr. Buxo spoke to me, the
survey of that storeroom was already completed'.
Scott, said: The survey started on 3rd January, 1956, and terminated at 2 p.m. on 6th January,
1956. At. 3.15 p.m. to 3.30 p.m. I was over in the power plant and working cn a new switch board.
When I was finished I was going over to my office upstairs of the Electricily Department. On passing
through the gates of he power 1.lant to go across the road to my office, when one half of the storeroom
door opened and I saw Mr. Iiuxo come out with a brown paper parcel under his arm. There were
tlihre cars parked below tlie office, and Mr. Buxo proceeding towards the cars when I shouted at him;
he then turned anr started up the stairs to the office. The store is directly beneath the office of the
Electricity Department. It is the boltom floor of the building. Unallocated stores are kept in the
storeroom. The storeroom is on the right of the stairway; if you look at the building with your back
to the Carenage, the door is about two or three feet to the right of the stairway. The cars were parked
to the left of the stairway almost in ilie same position as the doorway is on the right. I then shouted
to him a couple of times andi eventuiliy caught up with Mr. Buxo at the top of the stairway. I asked
hi what he had in the parcel ? He replied, "nothing" I asked him a second lime. He replied say-
ing it was a gadget. I asked him a ti!ird time and lie replied it was an electric gadget, but it was not
in stock. After which I took the parcel and I opened it and I saw a new sterilizer unit which is a
reserve unit for 'te sterilizer in the hospital, after which I turned over the unit to Mr. Bain my store-
keeper together with the wrapping paper. There is only one place in which the unit was used, I ordered
it about a month before, it, is the property of the Government of Grenada. (Unit shown to witness) he
said that was the unit-the paper is the identical paper with which the unit was wrapped. It is a
piece of paper with the Ericsson Telephone Company marked on it. The unit which I have with me
is similar to the one I turned over to my storekeeper".
Charles Grant, chief linesman of the electricity department also gave some corroborative evidence
to this effect. About 3 p.m. I was in the work room which is upstairs of one of the store rooms of
the Electricity Department. I heard Mr. Scott's voice whilst there. I looked out and I saw the
accused downstairs I heard Mr. Scott say, What this man doing with a parcel coming out of the
-storeroom I saw Mr. Buxo with a parcel folded. Buxo came into my workshop followed by Mr.
Scott. Mr. luxo said in reply to Mr. Scott Electrical gadgets not on store charge". Mr. Scott
enquiries were made three times. .'r. Scott said open it three times before they got into my workshop.
The parcel was eventually unfolded in my workshop; I saw it was a sterilizer heater element which
belongs to the Colony Hospital. Mr. Scott spoke to Mr. Buxo and eventually Mr. Buxo went away
leaving the element. When I saw the element opened, it was just as it is now". In answer to defence
counsel, Grant also said; Mr. Scott I could see lie was angry because he had to ask Buxo to open
it about three times before it was opened.".
Under cross-examination, Scott said "a 7 K.W. unit is the capacity of the sterilised unit in
.question. The 7 represents 7000 Watts". It was not suggested by the defence then that it was no
cther than a 7 K.W. unit. In point of fact, in examination in chief, the appellant said this apparatus
for which I am charged would not have been of any use to me whatever as it absorbs more electricity
than the Radio Station-it is a 7000 watts unit. I could not use it in my home as my home has been
inspected and it was suggested that if 1 used anything over 1000 watts it will set my house on fire.
I had no intention of leaving lte electricity department with that gadget". The defence here, apparently,
was setting up the unlikelihood of the unit being of any use to tle appellant. When cross-examined on
this point, appellant looked at the unit and said : I see 15 to 17 amps printed at the base of the
head of the equipment that is the water heater. I now say this is not the unit I was going to test, it
is a 7 kilo watt unit". lHe also said lie would have to calculate to determine whether it was a 7 kilo
watt unit instrument or otherwise; he calculated and said it is between 3-4 and a quarter kilowatts.

GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JULY 28, 195i.-(No. 44.)


Counsel for the appellant urged, among other things, that
(i) the identity of the heater alleged to be stolen was not established.
(ii) that the intent or 'animus farandi' was not proved.
There can be no doubt that the charge must'be proved as laid and also if the unit produced in Court
was not the unit with which the accused was found in possession, the appellant should succeed and the
case for the respondent must fail. The appellant was charged with stealing one water heater withotit
any reference to the capacity of the heater. The Magistrate found that tle heater produced in Court
was one and the same heater as that with which the appellant was found in possession
by Scott and that disposes of any question as to its identity. any lingering doubts as to
the real capacity of the heater is therefore: otiose. Further appellant said he never intended to
appropriate the article to his own use but that he had taken it away for the purpose of testing it. He
had said this to Scott at a late stage of the questioning. There was some evidence that on the first
day of the survey appellant referred to ten electric iron elements which he thought to be blown.
Cruickshank an employee and Bain told appellant they- had to test those things before writing them
off. The Magistrate had all this before him but believed the appellant's explanation to be false. He
had seen and heard the witnesses and was normally in a better position to say which of them was
trustworthy and which not. I cannot say he had not taken proper advantage of that opportunity.
The learned Magistrate in his reasons said: "The Court believes the evidence of Henry
"W. D. Scott. The Court believes the witness Scott when he stated I asked him (meaning Defen-
" dant) what he had in the parcel, he replied nothing". I asked him a second time ? He replied
" saying it was a gadget. I asked him a third time and he replied, it was an electrical gadget, but it
was not in the stock. After which I took the parcel and I opened it, and I saw a new sterilizer
" unit which is a reserve unit for sterilizer in hospital. Believing as the Court does the testimony of
" Messrs Gooding, Bain and Grant, the Court finds that the evidence is overwhelmingly against the
"defendant and that there is no question in the Court's mind as an element of doubt which can
' be given to the defendant as urged by his Counsel in a brilliant address which was skilfully pre-
" pared by minute cross-examination of the witnesses. The Court does not believe the defendant's
" story and however much the Court may be inclined to show sympathy to the defendant, the Court
"cannot allow its heart to run away with its head. On the question of the law the Court finds,
"applying the law to the facts as found by the Court, that all the definition of larceny was present,
" both in the English law and our local law".
If there was evidence upon which the Magistrate could so find and if lie did not derogate from
any legal principles or take a wrong approach in reaching his conclusions, an appellate court, even
though it might have found differently on the same facts, cannot disturb that finding. There is, in
my view, abundant evidence upon which the Magistrate could have come to the conclusion at which
he arrived and it is not surprising that he found as he did. He was fully seised of the principles of
law he had to apply and I am convinced that all the requirements of the statute had been satisfied.
The appeal is dismissed and the conviction and sentence affirmed.

Chief Justice.
