Judge(s): WOODALL

A Davidson County Grand Jury returned an indictment against Defendant, Andrew Joseph Aborizk, charging him with theft of property valued at more than $1,000 but less than $10,000. Following a jury trial , Defendant was convicted of theft of property valued at more than $500 but less than $1,000. The trial court imposed a sentence of two years as a Range One standard offender to be served on supervised probation. On appeal, Defendant argues that the evidence was insufficient to support his theft conviction because the State failed to prove identity of the perpetrator beyond a reasonable doubt. After a thorough review of the record, we affirm Defendant’s conviction for theft of property valued at more than $500 but less than $1,000.
