Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • When a defendant challenges the sufficiency of the evidence on appeal, the reviewing court must accord the judgment of the trial court sitting without a jury the same weight as a jury verdict. It is the appellate court’s duty to examine the evidence that tends to support the conviction and to uphold the conviction unless it is plainly wrong or without evidentiary support. Va. Code Ann. § 8.01-680. In making this determination, the appellate court must examine the evidence in the light most favorable to the Commonwealth.
  • In Virginia, larceny is a common law crime. Courts have defined larceny as the wrongful or fraudulent taking of personal goods of some intrinsic value, belonging to another, without his assent, and with the intention to deprive the owner thereof permanently. Stated simply, larceny requires that there be a taking and asportation of the seized goods, coupled with intent to steal those goods. The defendant’s intent to steal must exist at the time the seized goods are moved.
