ANTIGUA CIRCUIT.
Appeal No. 8 of 1952.
Between:
LAURISTON POTTER Appellant (.Deendant)
and
JOSEPH E. BYRON Resplondent (Complainant)
(.nspertor of Police)
Before \WoODING, J. (Actinq)
195". December 10th.
J. ROWAN HENRY for Appellant
C. A. KELSICK (Crown Attorney) for lIespondent.
JUDGE M ENT.
This is an appeal from a decision of the Acting Magistrate, District A given on the 1st May,
1952 whereby the defendant was convicted for unlawfully removing certain smuggled goods to wit four
,casks of rum, seven cases of brandy, three cases of wine and eight cases of Lucky Strike cigarettes con-
trary to section 42 of Ordinance No. 8 of 1900 as amended and fined 300 recoverable by distress and in
default sentenced to imprisonment for a period of six months with hard labour.
The salient points of the evidence before the Acting Magistrate were as follows:-
About 1 a. m. on the 26th April 1952 Sergeant Brookes and two other police officers were in
Liberta in motor vehicle A. G. 608 driven by one Ivan Edwards. Sergeant Brookes saw a motor vehicle,
to wit a pick-up, (later identified as A. G. 533) parked in an alley in Liberta and gave certain instructions
to the driver of A. G. 608 as soon as the pick-up !:eaan to move off in the direction of St. John's. In
consequence of those instructions the driver of A. (;. (;08 followed the pick-up and passed it, after which
A. G. 608 stopped and Corporal Edwards and Ser'cg.'iet Brookes got out. Both these police officers ran
towards the pick-up signalling to it to stop. The iick-up slowed down and the driver got out. It was
dark and both police officers switched on their flashlights. By the light of his flashlight Sergeant Brookes
identified the driver of the pick-up to be the defendant (appellant). Corporal Edwards held the defendant
and in the wrestling that ensued both fell to the ground. Eventually the defendant escaped and ran
away. There also ran two other men who were with the defendant in A.G. 533.
An examination of the contents of the pick-up A.G. 533 revealed the following:
4 casks of runm, 7 cases of brandy. 3 cases of wine, 8 cases of Lucky Strike cigarettes
and 2 bicycles.
The case for the defence was an alibi, it being sought to prove that the defendant was at home
:at the material time.
Counsel for appellant submits that the case turns on the question of identification which was
not such as to justify a conviction. He further submits that the fine is excessive.
The Court holds that there was sufficient evidence before the learned Acting Magistrate to justify
the conviction and is of the opinion that as the duty on the goods which were being removed was $1414.57,
the fine cannot be considered as excessive.
The appeal is therefore dismissed with 3. 3. 0. c-;ts.
