Before BELL, GODBOLD and INGRAHAM, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:

6

We grant appellee's petition for rehearing. In United States v. Miller, 492 F.2d 37 (5th Cir., 1974), the court held that Almeida-Sanchez v. United States, 1973, 413 U.S. 266, 93 S.Ct. 2535, 37 L.Ed.2d 596, should be given only prospective application. We therefore abandon any reliance upon Almeida-Sanchez. We do, however, sustain our prior reversal1 upon the authority of United States v. Storm, 480 F.2d 701 (5th Cir., 1973), and Marsh v. United States, 344 F.2d 317 (5th Cir., 1965), as discussed therein. See also United States v. Bursey, 491 F.2d 531 (5th Cir., 1974).
