Appellant was indicted in fourteen counts for violations of the narcotics statutes. He was tried by a jury, found guilty as charged, and sentenced. On this appeal he raises questions as to the sufficiency of the evidence against him, the sufficiency of the judge's instructions to the jury, the validity of his arrest, and the admissibility of certain physical evidence introduced against him. We have examined the record and considered the briefs, and we find no error affecting substantial rights of the appellant.
