Attys., Washington, D. C., submitted on the brief for appellee. Mr. Joseph M. Howard, Asst. U. S. Atty., Washington, D. C., at the time record was filed, and Mr. William E. Kirk, Jr., Asst. U. S. Atty., Washington, D. C., at the time brief was filed, also entered appearances for appellee.
Before EDGERTON, CLARK and FAHY, Circuit Judges.
Appellant was convicted of entering a store with intent to steal, and of maliciously destroying property. His principle contentions are (1) that the officers who arrested him without a warrant had no probable cause to believe he had committed a felony, and therefore the evidence taken from him was illegally seized and should have been suppressed; and (2) the evidence presented at the trial was insufficient to convict. We find no error.
