Defendant engaged a furrier to repair her fur coat. After the repairs were completed, she obtained possession of the coat on the pretense of trying it on and refused to return it or to pay for the work done. She was charged with grand larceny, the theory of the prosecution being that she feloniously deprived the furrier of his property (his repairmen's lien). Held, conviction affirmed. The court seemed to say that the value of the coat rather than the amount of the lien determined the degree of the larceny. State v. Cohen, (Minn. 1935) 263 N. W. 922.
