This appeal from a conviction for narcotic violations under Title 21, United States Code, Sections 173 and 174, raises the sole question whether the appellant was within the territorial limits of the United States when he had not left the custody of the customs officials. The contention is novel, but we conclude without merit. See United States v. Morello, 2 Cir., 250 F.2d 631 and Palmero v. United States, 1 Cir., 112 F.2d 922.
