HAUGABROOK v. THE STATE.
53374.
WEBB, Judge.
Theft by receiving. Crisp Superior Court. Before Judge Gregory.
Nathaniel Haugabrook was convicted of two counts of theft by receiving stolen property. He appeals from the denial of his motion for new trial, relying solely on the general grounds and specifically that the state failed to prove that the property in question was in fact stolen or that he knew or should have known that it was stolen, which are essential elements for conviction under Criminal Code 26-1806. We find no error.
Two witnesses testified as to how they removed merchandise from Redman Industries' plant late at night and delivered it in a rented U-Haul truck to Haugabrook's house where he paid them for it. The general manager and the materials manager of Redman industries identified the merchandise found in Haugabrook's possession by the serial numbers as items they had purchased, and testified that no one was authorized to go in the plant and remove merchandise after 6 p.m. when it closed.
App. 852 (222 SE2d 629) (1975).
D. E. Turk, District Attorney, for appellee.
Roberts, Roberts & Rainwater, Guy Velpoe Roberts, Jr., for appellant.
ARGUED FEBRUARY 15, 1977 -- DECIDED FEBRUARY 22, 1977 -- REHEARING DENIED MARCH 7, 1977 -- CERT. APPLIED FOR.
