MEMORANDUM* 

We have carefully reviewed Martin Allen Ridgeway's attack against the trial court's evidentiary rulings. The record provides a sound basis for those rulings. The identifications were reliable. See Simmons v. United States, 390 U.S. 377, 384 (1986); United States v. Bagley, 772 F.2d 482, 492 (9th Cir. 1985), cert. denied, 475 U.S. 1023 (1986); United States v. Field, 625 F.2d 862, 868 n. 2 (9th Cir. 1980). The search of the vehicle was supported by probable cause. See United States v. Chadwick, 433 U.S. 1, 12 (1977); Chambers v. Maroney, 399 U.S. 42 (1970); United States v. Bagley, supra. The videotape demonstrations were more probative than prejudicial. See Fjelstad v. American Honda Motor Co., 762 F.2d 1334, 1337 (9th Cir. 1985); United States v. Brady, 579 F.2d 1121 (9th Cir. 1978), cert. denied, 439 U.S. 1074 (1979). See also United States v. Mehrmanesh, 689 F.2d 822, 832 (9th Cir. 1982).

AFFIRMED.
