RICKY LAMONT MELTON v. STATE OF MARYLAND

Appellant, Ricky Lamont Melton, was convicted by a jury in the Circuit Court for Wicomico County, of attempted robbery, reckless driving, fleeing and eluding, and related offenses. The trial court sentenced Melton to 15 years for the attempted robbery count, with lesser, concurrent sentences on the remaining counts. Melton took a timely appeal, in which he presents the following questions for our review:

1. Did the trial court err in denying Melton’s motion to suppress physical evidence?
2. Did the trial court err in denying Melton’s motion to suppress the extrajudicial [] identifications of Melton by [the victim] Pamela Duke?
3. Was the evidence legally sufficient to sustain the conviction for armed robbery?
4. Did the trial court err in admitting hearsay evidence?

For the following reasons, we shall affirm.
