The defendants in this case have appealed from judgments of conviction and sentence pronounced by District Judge William E. Miller, trial by jury having been waived by the defendants. They were convicted of violating Sections 5008(b) 5686(b) of Title 26 U.S.C.A.


The case was submitted to our court on the record and the respective briefs of the United States Attorney and attorney for appellants, without oral argument. The points raised were that the District Court should have sustained the motion of appellants to suppress the evidence for lack of probable cause for the issuance of the search warrant; on the further ground that the warrant was insufficient on its face; and, finally, on the ground that the property seized was not that described in the search warrant. The District Court, in its well-reasoned opinion with appropriate citation of authority, 200 F.Supp. 764, overruled these contentions.


We are in accord with the reasoning of the United States District Court in its opinion. Accordingly, its judgment of conviction and sentence as to each defendant is affirmed.


It is so ordered.
