of John Burch. 45, colored, in the
i 1500 block of Fifth street N.W.
Burch, on the stand, testified he
couldn’t remember taking the
aerials or leaving them outside
; his door, although he “thought”
he had found them in an alley.'
* He didn’t say what he intended;
to do with them.
But confronted with a United
States Employment Service iden
