MAOLAREN and MEREDITH, JJ.A.--The two appellants were tried together in the County Judge s Criminal Court at London before the Junior Judge, for burglary and theft, and were both convicted. He granted them leave under section 1021 of the Criminal Code to appeal to this Court for a new trial on the ground that the verdict was against the weight of evidence.
