We cannot conclude that the trial court erred or abused its discretion in admitting certain testimony, pictures and objects and, as such, Appellant’s first and second assignments of error are overruled. Additionally, as we find no error, plain or otherwise, related to the instructions provided to the jury, Appellant’s third assignment of error is overruled. Likewise, based upon our determination that Appellant did not receive ineffective assistance of counsel, Appellant’s fourth assignment of error is overruled.
Further, in light of our determination that Appellant’s convictions were supported by sufficient evidence and were not against the manifest weight of the evidence, Appellant’s fifth and sixth assignments of error are overruled. Finally, as Appellant has failed to demonstrate any error, let alone multiple errors, his seventh assignment is overruled. Having overruled all of Appellant’s assignments of error, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
A review of the record reveals that on or about October 15, 2009, Appellant was stopped in Gallia County, while driving a white vehicle owned by Jessica Duncan, who was a passenger in the vehicle. Appellant was stopped after a high speed chase spanning twelve to fourteen miles. Once stopped, Ms. Duncan, the owner of the vehicle, provided consent to search the vehicle. There in, law enforcement recovered various items, including computers, tools, a shotgun, a purse, and jewelry, later determined to be stolen property, which was linked to multiple reported burglaries that had occurred throughout the day.
