Pound, 38, o[ Swift Current, Sask., who was con- victed by 2 jury in Chinook May 10, 1972, for allegedly stealing rifles and other arti- cles belonging to Turner- area farmer Joseph L. Desaye. The supreme court held that a search of Pound's veliicle on the DeSaye farm was not con- ducted legally and that the trial court erred in not requir- ing DeSaye to produce at tho trial records of transactions be- tweeu himself and Pound. The court record showed that the two men had transacted buHpess on various occasions dealing with shipment of coins from Canada to DeSaye and that Pound had done carpentry work for DeSaye. Pound had contended that DeSaye owed him and testified during the trial that he took property from DeSaye, but stated he felt he had noti- fied DeSaye he would take something if no payment were made on the alleged debt.
