A convicted Philadelphia burglar who insisted up and down that twopieces of jewelry he was wearing when arrested were acquired legallyisn’t entitled to the property, a split en banc Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court panelhas ruled.

John Singleton couldn’t produce receipts for the Gucci watch andgold-colored bracelet in question, and the authorities couldn’t matchthose two items to local burglary victims, as they were able to do withvirtually every other piece of jewelry seized from his possession as aresult of his arrest.
