If stores are found in the possession or keeping of a person being in Her Majesty’s service, or in the service of a public department, or being a dealer in marine stores or in old metals, [F1or a pawnbroker] (within the meaning of any enactments for the time being in force relating to such dealers [F1or to pawnbrokers]), and he is taken or summoned before a court of summary jurisdiction, and the court sees reasonable grounds for believing the stores found to be or to have been Her Majesty’s property, then if such person does not satisfy the court that he came lawfully by the stores so found, he shall be liable, on summary conviction, to a penalty not exceeding five pounds.
