“BELONGING TO ANOTHER” UNDER S.1(1) THEFT ACT 1968 OR ABANDONED

There had been sufficient evidence before a magistrates’ court for it properly to conclude that items left outside charity shops that a defendant had taken had belonged to someone other than the defendant at the time of appropriation, and so it had been right to commit the case to the Crown Court for trial.
