Where a defendant who was convicted of stealing by deceit challenged the admission of a security surveillance video, the judgment is affirmed because a proper foundation was established and the video was admissible under the silent witness theory of authentication in which the evidence speaks for itself and is substantive evidence of what it portrays without a sponsoring witness.
Judgment is affirmed.
