BARNES, C.J., McCARTY AND C. WILSON, JJ.
Nadarius Joiner was convicted of armed robbery and sentenced
to serve seven years in the custody of the Mississippi
Department of Corrections. Finding no arguable issue on
appeal, Joiner's appellate counsel filed a brief pursuant
to Lindsey v. State, 939 So.2d 743 (Miss. 2005).
Joiner was given additional time to file a supplemental brief
but did not do so. After thoroughly reviewing the record in
this case, we conclude that there are no reversible issues
and affirm Nadarius's conviction and sentence.

being held at gunpoint by Printess and Cornelius, but he did
not see anyone touch White or take anything from him.
Following the altercation, the victims drove to the police
station to file a report. After Detective Daryl Linzy took
statements from each of the men, he went to the apartment
complex looking for Nadarius, Cornelius, and Printess. He
located Printess that night. All three men were arrested
within a week or so of the robbery. Detective Linzy prepared
photo lineups to present to Tribble and Mamon; both men
identified Nadarius in the lineups.
Nadarius, Printess, and Cornelius were indicted by a grand
jury on two counts of armed robbery. At trial, Tribble
testified that Nadarius pointed a gun at him, but he did not
see anything else. On cross-examination, Tribble ...
